NEW: PDC EXCHANGE PROGRAM

The PDC Exchange Program is a modular, multi-location, internship-based PDC. It is extremely flexible and versatile and a way to obtain a PDC outside of the monetary economy, through work exchange with teachers anywhere in Australia. Your PDC is offered on a modular basis by teachers practising permaculture at various locations (initially in Australia) who can offer any number of modules, up to a full PDC program.

You do not pay money for your PDC course, but you do internship work in exchange for food, accommodation (if needed) and participation in the course. For more information, please see: www.sites.google.com/view/pdc-exchange
