PDCs in Europe

From: Mihail
Sent on: Saturday, May 18, 2013 4:01 AM
I have put together an e-mail to advertise the open PDCs I'm doing this year... could you send it out into your networks?


I am now on my last leg of the “tipi tour” – and I am so happy with it! It is showing a lot of potential for the future and I can’t wait to make more! More and more people are interested in living comfortably close to Nature and a Tipi is a perfect way to do it! J J If you haven’t yet seen the video I made in Norway, you can check it out here:

It’s now time for me to think about the SUMMER. Below, I have listed all of the PDCs I am booked to teach so far. The exciting locations include…

  • A beautiful horse farm in Czystogarb, POLAND – June 7th to 23rd
  • Another beautiful farm in Tuscany, ITALY – July 12th to August 1st
  • A breath-taking retreat center in the Rhodopi Mountains in BULGARIA – August 16th to September 1st.

If you could please browse through the information and links provided to see if any of these events suit you or your friends. Send it around! Let it go viral! If you don’t know it yet, I’m an awesome PDC teacher and have selected truly awesome people to work with this year. I’m hoping that through this, I can even meet more like-minded folks to expand the network and give permaculture some serious professional credibility in this world! We’re getting there, guys! The shift has begun, I feel it J

Once again, if you can’t make it, maybe a friend of yours can. Please send it out and I shall sprinkle you with gratitude from wherever I am to wherever on this lovely planet you are.

I’m here to answer any questions about these events – you can even email me personally at [address removed]

Best Regards,
