New Location, new course content, inspiring guest teachers, exciting new design templates and all lead by professional permaculture designer, consultant and teacher, Michael Wardle and his team at Savour Soil Permaculture.

We need to create a vision. We need to change the climate of our minds. We need to rebuild our inner landscapes. We need a positive, solution-focused way of thinking. We need to be inspired, and we have to act. We need to heal ourselves, our landscapes, our relationship with nature and our culture & communities. We need to learn how to reconnect with nature so we can mimic it in the design of our present and our future.

Limited to 15 participants to maximise learning outcomes Cost: Early Bird: $1000, Full Price: $1500

“This PDC wasn’t the first course I have completed with Michael but definitely the most life-transforming. If there was ever the right time to finally tackle a PDC, it was 2020 in the middle of a global pandemic. Michael is a great teacher and has so much knowledge to share, but his real ability is in bringing people together to share their stories and their ideas, find solutions in problems, and to build capacity for making a difference in our own communities, even if it’s as simple as showing our neighbours what a difference healthy soil can make. Michael was the qualified teacher leading the course, but it was the brilliant group of people I built connections with over 16 weeks who taught me just as much about permaculture in practice.”
– Dave, 2020
“I commend Michael Wardle on the creation of this brilliant resource, which integrates some of the best thinking in permaculture design with his many years of experience as a professional permaculture designer and educator. I hope that many people benefit from this accessible, step-by-step sequence which provides a robust scaffold for high quality permaculture design”

Course Educators
Not only do we benefit from Michaels extensive experience as an educator but the wealth of knowledge and passion from the entire Savour Soil design team.
We are also privileged to welcome Permaculture Elder and inspirational educator Robin Clayfield for a day of social permaculture. Tim Barker is a consummate gentleman actually living and breathing what he teaches. He will enlighten us with his rocket stoves and so much more.
Each week we learn a new aspect of permaculture and having these wonderful individuals join our course, bringing their very special insight is an absolute joy.
