Each participant will leave the course with a brand-new pair of Swiss Felco pruners, a copy of Bill Mollison’s Introduction to Permaculture, a printed course outline inside a comprehensive binder with over 100 pages of information, and the confidence and skills to create self-sufficient gardens of their own!
