PDC at Lost Valley December 2014

I took a Permaculture Design Course with Jude Hobbs, Rick Valley, Maraisha Aurebach, and teaching assistant Anna Wemple, at Lost Valley, Oregon in December, 2014.  It was lovely! This PDC was offered through the Cascadia Permaculture.

Here are some pictures of the course, the location, activities and participants.

“The thinking and design revolution, of which permaculture is part, only makes sense when it reconnects us to the wonder and mystery of life through practical interaction.”
