Based over 6 weekends, the 2019 Edinburgh PDC will once again be based at Bridgend Farmhouse, with a number of site visits planned.
Led by three main teachers, James, Nenya and Jenny, there'll also be feature sessions with guest teachers - practitioners, designers and specialists in their area.
We aim for classes which are relaxed, fun and interactive, with a good mix of information sessions, hands-on practical work, principles observation opportunities, creative project work and participatory ideas exchange. We welcome people of all levels of experience and backgrounds: come prepared to learn and share. We hope this will be the start of your lifelong permaculture journey.
