Frequently Asked Questions
What is this course all about?
Reading your Land is a course where you learn the tools and techniques to understand your land well. A good permaculture design starts with a good understanding of your land. Too often, people skim over this stage, and simply see the land as a square on a piece of paper. Take it from me, you will not have a robust design without Reading your Land first.
Who is this 'Reading your Land' course for?
This course is for you if you have a parcel of land which you are planning to develop the permaculture way. The land may have nothing at present, or may already have an orchard or a garden.

Will I be able to design my permaculture garden after this course?
