Elizabeth W. Really enjoyed learning simple and easy techniques to maintain healthy soil to grow a diverse range of edibles. Great to Learn how to put together your own compost and fertiliser and what edibles take or put back into the soil in order to rotate crops efficiently and keep production at a maximum. I have not drawn a plan as my veggie garden is already in place however I appreciate the necessity of making keen observations and designing according to needs and water source.
Britt S. There were some good points in this course that helped me with drawing up a plan and getting started on that was really useful. Great reading suggestions too. Thank. you.
Simon L. This is a nice and easy to follow course, I’ve only been into growing for a bout 2 years and heard about permaculture only recently. I’d live to learn more on this. Thank you for sharing all these.
Junna T. Thank you so much. This was a nice start to my permaculture journey.

Excellent! I just completed this course and I want to thank Ewa for this huge amount of information and practical “how to” instructions in each lesson. I really loved the fact that Ewa explained it all so clearly and guided me to get a clear idea of where to start, how to set up my edible garden and how to grow healthy food. It is exactly as the name of this course says: the complete guide of permaculture sustainable vegetable gardening. The design I had ready at the end of this course was something I didn’t expect I will be able to do myself!
Thank you so much for your review Emma! It means a lot. It was a great pleasure to have you here as a student. Wishing you all the best for the future! Ewa.
