Hi Everybody,

I am not going to dress this e-mail up to be something that its not.
This is a straight up sales pitch.
In the coming months we have two killer permaculture events starting up and I think that you should all attend one or maybe both of them.

On June 15th and 16th my good friend Nick Ritar, of Milkwood Permaculture, is teaching a two day permaculture workshop in North Vancouver.  Nick is a fantastic presenter, he has been on TEDx Australia, and is knowledgeable beyond his years when it comes to permaculture.  I have known Nick since 2006 when he and his wife Kirsten first got Milkwood going.  In just a short 7 years time they have managed to turn a very degraded piece of Australia sheep country into a thriving permaculture site.  Currently Nick is on a research trip in the United States and will be making his only stop to do some teaching for us on June 15th and 16th.  He has a massive pile of practical know how and will do his very best to distil the essentials during this two day workshop.  Whether you are looking for a great intro to permaculture or a more advanced perspective this weekend class will not disappoint.

Follow this link for more information:

We have a full length part time PDC starting on July 13th.  Classes running every second weekend until October 6th.  We have got all the ingredients for a top notch permaculture learning experience over here on Bowen.  We have a bright a beautiful classroom, we keep the class size small 12 or less, we have our very own micro-farm site for hands on work, we do a full day design installation during each course and the student design project's are always for real life clients here on Bowen.

Follow this link for more information:

The Offer

If you sign up for the full length PDC by June 14th we will give you the workshop with Nick Ritar at no extra cost ($200 value)

Please, I would very much appreciate if you could pass this information along to anyone you know that might care.  I hope to see you at one of these events.  Thank you for entertaining this sales pitch.
