Congratulations to everyone that had a part in our first ever

Permaculture Design Certificate

It was a huge couple of weeks full of learning and friendship, music and food. We made use of our new building for the first time ever (the builders have moved back in now to finish the job) and the old barn provided and amazing space for meals, music and fun.

Every teacher had something new to add and participants were moving from activity to activity taking it all in. We squeezed in heaps of site visits and extras (occasionally too much) and students worked in groups to complete design exercises for both small scale and broad acre designs.

Anyone can do a Permaculture Design Certificate……an internationally recognised course that takes place over 72 hours. We like to make it a live in (camp in) event as its the joy of making new friends and establishing new connections that makes the whole experience more special.


From one of our participants……

“Having recently visited permaculture farms throughout Australia and New Zealand, I can confidently recommend Fair Harvest Margaret River as a leading training venue in Australasia.

Jodie brought together a dream team of expert facilitators too good to pass up. Days were varied and stimulating, with theory broken up by farm visits, practical exercises and group work. The awesome healthy food straight from the garden helped us on our way, and it was great staying on site.

A PDC brought new friends and the tools, inspiration and knowledge to begin designing for ourselves.  My thanks, deep appreciation and congratulations to Jodie and the Fair Harvest crew – the best in the west!”
