Whoo Hoo!!! It’s booked up, it’s official! I’m going to be attending the Sustainable Land Use course with Patrick Whitefield early next year.
Do I sound excited?!
The course is actually something I looked at a while ago but at that stage it was held over 9 weeks, which was a bit too much to commit to (though sadly, there’s no longer any funding available). It’s now been compressed into five, plus a half term week in between. It’s still a hell of a long time to be away, and I’ve no idea how we’ll manage that, but it’s such a spectacular opportunity that I can’t not go just because it would be inconvenient.
The first part of the course consists of three modules: Ecology, Organic Horticulture and Woodland. Then the final two weeks are the 72 hour Permaculture Design Course.
It’s not long from now at all. I hope the goats and Jeroen can make friends before I go …..
