“ One of the best things I have done is take the permaculture design course! Its life giving.... literally. ”

" I loved every minute. Excellent people, excellent instruction, excellent discussion, invaluable knowledge. I wish I could take it again just to be able to integrate everything more fully. If you have any interest at all in sustainable living (which you should, if you reside on Earth), you must seriously consider permaculture training. There's really no other ship that can sail all the way across the sea. "

“ A school is only as good as its teacher/s, and Nicholas Burtner is a true teacher (leader) who cares about his students and the world at large. He practices what he preaches and he enables his students to go out into the world and do good works. I highly recommend the School of Permaculture! ”
