We have taught Permaculture courses to many hundreds of students and transformed hundreds of lives. Come and take this practical based Permaculture Design Course at the beautifully designed Finca Sin Fronteras this May 2022 and gain skills and knowledge that will enable you to work and design holistic sustainable systems across the world. We follow the Bill Mollison Permaculture Design System curriculum , so you can rest assured you will be receiving a top notch education with a valuable certificate. Our certificates are issued by the Permaculture Research Institute of Australia headed by Geoff Lawton.
During your course you will have plenty of opportunities to get your hands dirty and gain practical experience of the subjects that are being taught in the theory classes, meaning you will leave with practical experience to compliment the theory classes. Finca Sin Fronteras is a working example of a Permaculture farm which produces significant quantities of food and uses building materials which can be locally sourced.
“I was in lovegrows 2020 February for the pdc course and I really was so happy to be there. Russ had a very good combination of practical and theoretical skills-we always had the chance to go to practice and do it straight away which was for me very helpful to understand and integrate the learning. Russ is very experienced in having students and their needs and also has a huge knowledge of the local situation. It was a joyful and life changing experience and I am very happy that I ended up there to get first introduced to permaculture.
“I did a PDC course with Russ Manning and Chris Hill from December 1 to 14, 2019 as well as 3 months of learning as part of an exchange programme work.
Russ took his role as a teacher to heart by being always available to answer our questions, share what he knew while making sure everyone understood the entire course.
He was able to listen to our projects to make concrete examples that spoke to us.
This course taught me to observe nature, understand how a forest works, the climate etc.
I recommend Russ and Chris for their desire to pass on this knowledge to others to try to change the world around us.
“I studied my PDC at Lovegrows Finca with Russ and Chris in December 2019. In addition to his experience and vast amount of knowledge, Russ possesses many qualities that make him a very able teacher. He has a very calm and patient approach and is very clear and concise when communicating. His farm provided a beautiful space to see permaculture concepts in action and I came away fully inspired to start my own permaculture journey on my recently bought piece of land. Since the course, Russ has always been fully committed to supporting me on my project. He is readily available on whatsapp with advice or answers to any queries and even visited our site a year ago to see how we’re getting on.”
