I saw here informations about some PDC organized in Eastern and Central Europe. And I would like invite you to take part in our PDC.

Who we are?
ECOCENTRE ICPPC the first fully-integrated small-scale ecological demonstration site in Poland. The site includes working examples of clay and straw buildings, organic food gardens, home-scale renewable energy, grey-water recycling systems, rainwater catchment systems, and a developing permaculture food forest. The ecocentre is located in Stryszow, Malopolska province, Poland, a village of 2,000 people, nestled in the foothills of the picturesque Carpathian Mountains.

Details of the PDC
An experienced permaculture teacher and designer, founder of Glacial Lakes Permaculture, Karl J. Schmidt teaches permaculture design course in Poland. Karl was a student of e.g. Bill Mollison and geoff lawton.

The Course will run 12 full days, starting on the morning of Monday, August 6, 2012 and ending in the afternoon of Saturday, August 18, 201. It takes place in EKOCENTRUM ICPPC ( in Stryszow and is taught in English.

The PDC covers the standard 72-hour curriculum developed by Bill Mollison which is commonly taught all over the world, but will include extra information tailored to colder climates, as well as practical, hands-on components to spur active learning about permaculture processes and design. Hands-on course sessions will give participants a chance to work on projects developed in EKOCENTRUM ICPPC.

For students from the former communist countries of Eastern and Central Europe, the full Permaculture Design Course fee is USD 1000/EUR 750/PLN 3350. (Participants from other countries pay 1500 USD).

I would love to take a PDC here. I just moved to Warsaw. If the move didn't take away all of my money I would come but, my money is tight.
