Hi everybody, I was thinking of doing a pdc in the New England area and was wondering if knows of a good one. Also I was thinking of going to whole systems design http://www.wholesystemsdesign.com has anybody gone here and if so would you recommend it?
There are many courses now in Vermont, New Hampshire, New York state, NYC, and Massachusetts-
I guess it depends on what you are looking for- a certain time of year to fit your schedule, a different format (such as a weekend format, residential, multi-part, etc.), and focus, such as practice, design, social activism, farm scale, home scale, etc.
Fortunately- you have many options!
And fortunately, most of the people teaching courses around here do it very well- but do your research!
The differences may be more in style of teaching, etc. Although there's actually only a few very 'seasoned' designers/ teachers.
Let us now where your interests are, and we'll be happy to provide some more feedback.
As far as Ben's- great site, totally worth seeing.
