For people who are aware of the need for change in the world, the Permaculture Research Institute Sunshine Coast is an educational facility that encourages change to a sustainable, self reliant and abundant lifestyle to benefit self, others and the earth.

Tom’s practical background adds a lot to the credibility of the material. I will recommend it strongly to anyone looking to do a PDC!” – PDC Student June 2013 "WOW, what an amazing place you have here!

WE NEED MORE PEOPLE LIKE YOU IN THIS WORLD :)" – Andrew Cameron, a PDC graduate wwoofing with us.
