I have learned and changed so much throughout the Women’s Permaculture PDC course. At a time in my life when everything seemed very uncertain due to new motherhood, job loss, and Covid-19, it was truly a breath of fresh air to take this permaculture course and be able to observe, interact, and move at my own pace. What I appreciated in this course was the different perspectives received from the instructors, the “outside of the box” mentality and seeing the same thing, but from different views (birds eye vs. worms eye). I have seen the water on our site becoming more absorbed by the components implemented at the beginning of the design process, as the plants grow and mature. We have grown a little more food each year and have really created the home that we want to stay in for some time.
