I saw that Floot had opened a thread called "What attracted you to permaculture?" which is a brilliant question. It raised another question, which is who has taken a course, where, and who were the instructors. I took a PDC in 1992, and it was a big part of why our farm looks the way it looks. I was lucky enought to be able to have Michael Pilarski, Rick Valley, Jose Caballero, Chuck Marsh and Mark Cohen as the instructors. It was another pivotal event, one that neatly divides my life neatly into before/after segments. Who has taken a PDC, and who were your teachers?
