"I took the P3 course in 2016. I found it very interesting and eye opening. I was also impressed with the passion that Graham had for permaculture and his willingness to share his knowledge. I since retired from the rat race and bought an 8 acre property in New Brunswick with a river in the backyard. Now I can finally concentrate on playing with my permaculture design knowledge. Happy Anniversary P3, keep up the excellent work, the world need it desperately!"

I would like to give a HUGE thank-you to Graham Calder of P3 Permaculture! I feel the PDC was a first step into a new and better life. The true knowledge that was shared was nothing less than jaw dropping, mind blowing, eye opening and is so very very important to know. Graham is the kind of teacher we need to truly evolve into what we are meant to be. I would recommend the PDC to EVERYONE , as you can apply the principles learned to every aspect of your life. I certainly will be trying. "
