    Hi All,

    It has not even been 12 months since I first even heard the word 'permacultre', but ever since I have had a huge interest and read plenty of stuff online, as well as a few books, a couple of times over (Permacaulture Home Garden, Intro to Permaculture and Principals & Pathways Beyond Sustainability) . It all just seemed to make sense to me. so I thought I might as well go and do a PDC.

    Well, now I have booked and paid for the course, and now I am feeling as if I don't know enough to do the course :?

    Am I just worrying about nothing, or should I be doing more research prior to the course?

    Appreciate you thoughts and comments.

    Hey Matt,

    Great! You won't regret it and all you need to bring is your open mind and quick wit (especially if Darren Doherty is your instructor :lol: ). You know more than enough with all of your reading and time spent here. The PDC isn't so much about knowing a lot of details as it is about concepts and how to apply them (although there are plenty of details to illustrate each point!). Although almost everyone brought a laptop computer to the PDC I attended, I brought only a notebook and easily filled it in the two weeks. The laptop would have been a distraction I didn't need. We spent in excess of ten hours each day learning with plenty of discussion time at meals, then many stayed for more discussion later into the evenings. I spent evenings reading the Design Manual relative to the day's topics. It was full immersion, focused study and we all loved it.

    I think that the PDC was one of the best things I've ever done and I'm sure you will too.
