Aid Projects, Courses/Workshops, Demonstration Sites, Developments, Education Centres, News — by Craig Mackintosh PRI Editor April 4, 2009
Good news people! We’ve just received local council approval on our development plans, which means we can move forward with our intention to improve the facilities and increase the capacity of our Permaculture training facility at PRI headquarters at Zaytuna Farm, close to The Channon village, in Northern NSW, Australia.
Up until now, accommodation for courses has been camping only, and facilities have been somewhat rudimentary. Once this development is complete we’ll have improved facilities for the campsite and five straw bale cabins as well!
I’ll put the design plans below so you can check ‘em out.
Please note – getting these approved is just the first step. Now we’ve got to get the thing built! It’s a fairly expensive endeavour – so if any generous souls would like to contribute, we would greatly appreciate it! Interest in our courses is running at an all time high, and we anticipate this to be a growing trend in the face of all that is happening worldwide. Geoff will be doing his darndest to avoid taking on international consultancies now – concentrating instead on the new wider range of courses we now offer. The bigger, better facilities will enable us to get even more fired-up Permaculturists out there and involved in establishing new projects (aid projects, or otherwise), as per our ‘Permaculture Master Plan‘.
