2021 Murrnong PDC, and more

The 2021 Murrnong Permaculture Design Course begins on Saturday Jan 23, and takes place over six weekends until May 16. All the dates and other details for the course are available here, and tickets here.

We are really pleased to have been able to add three new RetroSuburbia style house and garden retrofits to our site visits this year, and yes, these have been developed by previous PDC participants. Through these visits we engage with seven home gardens, seven house/ building retrofits, and 3 or 4 farm enterprises. We hear from at least eight women and eight men…. it takes a village to teach a permaculture course! Again this year one of those tutors is our special guest David Holmgren, who will be with us for the April weekend.

Internships and learning exchange at Murrnong
This is an opportunity to live and learn in the non-monetary economy. Internship tasks and program can be tailored to suit specific interests. Murrnong’s size, and diversity of elements, allow for a big range of tasks and allow for visitors to choose areas of responsibility.
There is even more scope for responsibility with Cecilia away for at least four months from December 2020. Read more here.
