Weekend 1 of PDC at Applewood

I've finally started doing something I've wanted to do for a long time - a Permaculture Design Certificate.

So I've spent the last two days at Applewood Permaculture Centre doing the first weekend of a 6 weekend, 12 day PDC


Learning about stacking and edge effects


Making a mulch bed.





Made some new friends as well :)

Hard work, long days and I loved every moment of it :)

I'll be at Applewood for a weekend every month, ending in June, after which, fingers crossed I will be the proud posessor of a Permaculture Design Certificate :)


Hard work, long days and I loved every moment of it :)
