I really have only positive things to say about the course and the overall experience. Food was tasty, nutritious and fresh. Camping facilities were fine and easy to access (I suppose an extra shower could help). The course itself was informative and inspiring, sort of gives you the kick you need to take action and start designing. Geoff is great at informing, motivating and breaking down the barriers to action […]

We were inspired to learn about permaculture when we saw Geoff’s DVD, Establishing a Food Forest. We then followed up by watching all of the PRI DVDs and we knew that we wanted to do a permaculture design certificate taught by Geoff. Well we weren’t disappointed! Two weeks of back to back lessons interacting with Geoff exceeded all our expectations. We came away from the course knowing that we are […]

I spent one year volunteering at PRI. During this time I was active in creating food forests, implementing water harvesting systems, helping to manage an edible forest producing nursery, practiced daily in integrated animal systems and dug around in and ate from a rich and diverse vegetable garden. I appreciated being given space to be creative and try new ideas using permaculture principles and felt like I was participating in […]

I headed to Australia in January of 2010 to study permaculture with Geoff and Nadia Lawton at Zaytuna Farm. There was nowhere in the U.S. to go and study water harvesting techniques, so I traveled to the Southern hemisphere. I had taken my PDC three years before and was working in the realm of non-profit sustainability education, and was looking to expand my practical skillset, particularly in the area of […]

All experience is what you make of it – so if you go to PRI, make sure to have the attitude and mindset to make the most out of it. The hands on experience and training at PRI gave me the foothold to pursue my calling which is to love and help as many people as I can. If I knew a better earthly way than permaculture to do that […]

A PDC held at Zaytuna farm gives you the enviable opportunity of not only seeing the theory of Permaculture in action, but the optional experience of getting your hands dirty by being involved in the daily activities of a working Permaculture paradise. I found the daily opportunity of working alongside and interacting with those at Zaytuna strengthened my practical skills and allowed me to learn more as they patiently answered […]

The Urban Permaculture Design course up at Zaytuna was inspiring! Geoff was enigmatic as always, the food and company great and best of all was the experience of being involved in the daily activities at the farm. I’d highly recommend the experience.
