First UK Permaculture Diploma gathering
Held in Birmingham, November 2011. It was a really good two day event. It was held in the Bilberry center: An excellent hostel venue and great food.
There was a comprehensive program of seminars that were run by both diploma holders and apprentices. Because there were 4 seminars in each time slot there was so much to choose from.
I highly recommend it. We also got an opportunity to have individual design tutorials with a range of diploma tutors (for an extra cost). It made tapping into their level of expertize really easy.
It was a well 'stacked' (packed) weekend with lots of time to meet with peer groups and discuss the diploma.
This year it was fully booked with 65 attendees: 4 from Scotland and 61 from England. I'm sure next year there will be at least 100 people wanting to come.
