Hi, I'm new to this forum. I am just wondering about the Permaculture course offered by the Australian Correspondence Schools (acs.edu.au). Has anyone done it and what's it like. I bought 4 ha in Widgee three years ago (just before the prices went up) but as I'm overseas a lot I'm still in the planning stage, though I spend my vacations making compost and planting trees which are growing really quickly. (But I only see them in photots occasionally so I'm excited at how much they've grown.) I was a bit worried at first as the land was solid clay and the rainfall is low but was really encouraged by the permaculture principles so I made tons of compost and now can easily fork down about 18 inches in the garden beds.
