“I did it! I graduated from the Permaculture Design Course!
A huge thank you to instructor Cathe’ Fish for investing her heart in this class and sharing her wisdom. Never a dull moment, this course was jam packed with material and hands on experience, and takes place on a living, breathing permaculture farm complete with food forest. Cathe’ is a high energy, motivational teacher who goes above and beyond simply teaching agricultural systems, to bring us social design principles applicable to every aspect of life. These are principles I will use every single day for the rest of my life, as they have become part of my mindset.”
“Great experience! Non stop and high energy. All the info I hoped for and so much more. Very well organized and held my attention at all times. Very thorough coverage of the many connected aspects of Permaculture and our place in the big picture — local and global. I am infinitely more optimistic about the future.“
~ HG, architect Port Angeles, WA

“Excellent Workshop. On one hand I want to take any future workshops you do; on the other hand, this workshop was so informative, I feel I now know everything. Surpassed expectation.”
“Thanks for such a wonderfully informative and inspiring class! I’m ordering solar cookers today.” ~ J.G. author Strawberries in November
“It’s like someone turned on a light bulb. I couldn’t stop talking about the workshop. It was amazing! An excellent blend of facts, general info, details, concepts. It was the shot in the arm/kick in the pants I needed, and so many wonderful people to work with. I look forward so much to what will emerge from these seeds that were planted in the last few days.” ~ M.McNeal, San Francisco

“Great class with intensive practical tips and ideas, lots of info tightly packed in.”
“Excellent class! It is so useful to have this abundance of information synthesized by someone so knowledgeable. It has given me a starting point to tackling something that has seemed so overwhelming.”
“Terrific workshop. 12 out of 10.” ” Incredibly inspiring and informational. It was a ton of great information and very inspirational. The hands-on element really made it all come together. I’m excited to do more and be better prepared for the future — and more connected with others in the community,”
“I learned so many new things, such exciting and practical ideas for recovery of the old ways for a healthier earth and healthier people.”
“I enjoyed your workshop so much. It was such a nice combo of down home sustainable living ideas, and practical gardening tips, and so warm and wonderful with the addition of the ideas around nutrient dense food and fermentation…and your personality. Very hopeful feeling, that this can still be done in our days, and how crucial it is, and that we can spread it more and more.”
“From Permaculture Founder Bill Mollison: “This course has already changed a lot of the world. Come help us change the rest.”
