Teaching the First PDC
We (me and Janick) were asked by Thomas Krüger from Latvia to hold an Intensive PDC on his farm. The course was held in english and we had participants from Germany, Latvia, Estonia and Belgium taking part.
As it was our first time teaching a PDC and we were quiet nervous about how it would work out. The teaching materials were based on the information we got during our own PDC at down to earth academy and the book about teaching permaculture from Rosemary Morrow. So the topics we were defined, but we didn’t have a fixed timetable as we wanted to fit in as many practical stuff as possible.
Perfect for me, as I don’t like those rigid and fixed stuff at all!
Meeting our Host – Thomas Krüger
For us it was also very interesting to meet our host, Thomas Krüger, for the first time. We had only been in contact by email and maybe had a skype call before we met at his farm in Latvia for the first time. This was also the time we worked out a rough timetable and fitted in all the practical stuff we were able to do at his site during the course.
