Commitment beyond courses

Our courses have been known to transform peoples lives and landscapes. Like the seed, our training is just the beginning of your Permaculture journey and some nurturing may well be needed afterwards. PSI cares about your successful application of permaculture after your training. It is always there for advice and backup services in dealing with obstacles that can arise; it gives practical advice to assist.
