Say you wanted to study Permaculture or Regenerative design and you really wanted to understand how to design your own farm or project; they'd be all these books you should read, maybe some films on the internet, or maybe you download information from the internet, and all that may avail no action. All that could avail is a basic understanding of principles & elements of design, in a way similar to an artist's palette. You could have all the colors and brushes but unless you know how to paint you're going to end up with a big mess. That's where we got to in today's society, a big mess.

Are you interested in designing your own garden, farm or maybe even creating a self-sufficient habitat? Or are you passionate about learning how to regenerate damaged ecosystems while catering for the needs of local people? Perhaps you want to become a professional permaculture designer? This is your chance: we would like to invite you for the first international Certified Permaculture Design Course organized with Richard Perkins in Poland, 11-22 July, 2015 in Kopaniec.

It's also the first international PDC in Central-Eastern Europe where a babysitter is arranged so that couples & single parents could bring along their children to a fun, organic, rural tourism farm. The farm is located at the foot of the Sudety mountains, close to the German and Czech borders, 15-min drive from Jelenia Gora, 2 hrs from Wroclaw and Prague and 3 hrs from Berlin.

Richard is one of Europe's leading Permaculture designer/educators & Keyline practitioners, working professionally in every major climate zone across several continents consulting to projects, farms & industry. Having led over 35 PDC trainings as well as dozens of other specialist courses, internships and seminars, Richard has designed for varied projects in more than a dozen countries. He is a certified teacher with the Permaculture Research Institute of Australia and the Permaculture Association of Great Britain.

Definitely more actions is good. In my book that means doing even if you're not sure... just start something even if not sure.. .also courses are great - not sure if people can commit or really can understand things from the seriousness of doing or committing to a 'course' but yeah more people and skills, the more it will reach out I hope for free (as in freedom). Big spend involve big mistakes (not directing that to you)
Interesting to get hands on - welcome to visit here and try some of the mention magic if you or others have some...
