Hi Sandra...may I correct you here ? You say "(more interesting and
relevant) for the (south) europeans on the list"
This is another internationally accredited Permaculture Design Course, PDC,
followed by a Permaculture Teacher Training Course. Given by two of the
highest qualified and most experienced teachers available today. It is not
specific to south europeans, nor is it more interesting and relevant for
south europeans. Such courses are international. Of course it is an
excellent opportunity for south europeans to take up this opportunity in
their own front yard, and hopefully many will and gain the benefits and
rewards from doing so. But I reiterate that it is two courses that are
extremely valuable for everyone throughout this network and all other
networks, with no specific bias to south europe. So I hope all can
appreciate this and pass it on to all your networks with positive
promotion. Best regards Steve Hart
