"I cannot see anyone who attempts undertaking this course going back to a normal life that doesn't include some kind of permaculture. I am thoroughly enjoying all the information included, the videos shared and the reality of what really happens. It's more than a short course and I feel like a 'dry sponge'." - MA (Learner taking this course)
