The Kinstone PDC is unique. You will be learning at an active Permaculture site and agro-tourism destination that is visited by hundreds of people each year. You will have many opportunities to put theory into practice by doing hands-on, creative activities at Kinstone. We will also visit at least one regional site in an urban or rural setting where Permaculture principles are actively practiced and promoted. Special guests will share their expertise as well.
