Thank you! This experience has been quietly momentous in terms of where my family and I go from here, a real turning point.


Thank you so much for your time, and for sharing your knowledge, your home, your family, your vision and your energy.


The local and plant knowledge Jo has is amazing. I felt just this aspect alone to be so beneficial throughout the course.

Renee Vink

Most valuable for me to see a permaculture property in action, and a house that follows these principles too.

Alan McGregor

Great to attend a course where people totally believe in and know about what they are teaching.


This course will definitely help me in taking the steps needed to be self-sufficient. Nice to meet like-minded people. Informative, practical, well presented, great utilisation of learning styles. Covered topics thoroughly.

Jackie Lynch

A really informative, well presented introduction to permaculture design. I thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone interested in permaculture.

Vicky White

I feel confident to create a site plan and implement it now. It all felt a bit overwhelming before. I feel like I’ve gained an overview of the whole permaculture system and it makes sense now.
