Gregoire Lamoureux is one of Canada's most experienced permaculture teachers. We at The Blockhouse School Project are excited that he's coming from BC to teach our third annual PDC! More about him below.

COURSE FEE: $1200 includes camping accommodation (in your own tent) and meals (more details on website). Early Bird: $1000 if paid in full by May 1.

Coming from the US? This is your year to save on a PDC in Canada, as the US dollar is currently worth about 10% more than the Canadian dollar.

Full information available on our website at theblockhouseschool.org.
