QWhat do Costa, Rosemary Morrow, Russ Grayson, Steve Cran and Geff Lawton have in common?

A:  They all did PDCs with Robyn Francis.

People frequently ask ‘What are previous course participants doing with their permaculture training?’  or ‘Can you recommend former students for permaculture design and other professional services?’ Check out this short list of former students and what they’re doing…


This page features services, projects and initiatives of graduates from permaculture courses, vocational and professional training at Djanbung Gardens, with Permaculture Education, Erda Institute and Permaculture College Australia, and of courses with Robyn Francis throughout Australia and overseas.
