Another PDC will be happening on the island of Martha's Vineyard however with a different group of people running it. New hostel managers and new facilitators are sure to make this a fantastic course in conjunction with a few of the emerging Permaculture farms. The Martha's Vineyard Guild has been established and is going quite strong with meetings, film nights and even a book club. Kaila Binney of TreeYo Permaculture is really pushing the movement along there with these events and will be joined for the course by her old TreeYo partner Doug Crouch. Hope to see you there!
