I have been an organic gardener for decades, yet somehow missed exposure to permaculture until shortly before I enrolled in the Permaculture Women’s Guild’s PDC course. I absolutely loved the videos! Watching female permaculture practitioners from around the world in their various environments present their areas of passion was so inspiring.
Creating my design plan as I worked on improving the sandy soil on our site and experimenting with various plants as I learned more about the climate in our new location forced me to slow down, observe in more detail, and ultimately to simplify my approach. Now that I have been introduced to the idea of applying permaculture to all areas of life, I am forever changed. I love the holistic approach and now embrace it as a lifestyle.
