The course was so exciting for me on many different levels, I learnt so much more than I ever anticipated. The permaculture teaching was beautifully woven along with a strong Weston A Price approach to food, and Kay's very specific knowledge on gardening techniques to grow nutritious food we all need. It was an amazing holistic blend of wisdom, knowledge, spiritual, emotional and practical components. It gave me a vision for a future that I'm excited about. aroha KJ
This course was a very emotional, passionate, informative, 12 day, 12 hours per day course. This has been a life changing experience. I write on behalf of Kirsten and I who have been truly inspired by you both, Kay and Bob. It is a very rare experience to encounter such giving people with such passion and knowledge, which is truly an honour to be part of such visionary thinking.
