The story so far

Tamara left Bunyip in April 2009 seeking what she needed to know for her permaculture future. She spent 9 months at her Aunt Catherine's farm in Arid South Australia, then 9 months at Bill and Lisa Mollison's farm in Tasmania. Now she's off on more adventures starting Moonrise School of Permaculture and teaching Permaculture Design Courses in the beautiful Dandenong Ranges near Melbourne. Ducky is there for the journey...

planetary Permaculture Pilgrimage - Rosemary Morrow!!!

Planetary Permaculture Pilgrimage - Rosemary Morrow!!!

Hello beautiful people! We have now had 3 days of Rowe Morrow's amazing teacher training course and we are brimming with total excitement for the future and desire to run PDCs as soon as possible. Teachers who were at Robin Clayfield's course last week have quickly picked up Rowe's sage advice and the women are planning Women's PDCs! We are thinking Whyalla, Pt Augusta, Northern Victoria, Crystal Waters and Uki.

Here is a pic of us all with our hero - and I never use that word lightly having studied WW1 so much (I never use it for sports players and the like - but in the last year Rowe has taught in Afghanistan, Uganda and Ethiopia and over 27 years she has taught in so many war zones, refugee camps and crippled countries. It is what i plan to spend my life doing - and as Rowe had said - it hasn't been an easy life and very lonely at times. But this has so fortified my commitment to the world that as soon I have a good lot of PDCs under my belt I'll be in prisons in Oz and overseas wherever permaculture is needed.

I have long said that Rowe is one of the two most beauiful people on the planet. One was a wonderful old lady that I was in Halls Creek with and the other is Rowe.  

Rowe is being incredibly encouraging and I feel empowered to go out and teach. Hearing from Rowe that I appear to know the content of a PDC and have some good teaching methodologies has been inspiring. 

We have been doing so many things - lots on adult learners, good and bad teachers, Nonviolent Communication, questioning as a teaching technique and we've all been doing a long curriculum sheet of butchers paper with all the topics and the must-teach information. 

Rowe is teaching teacher training at Milkwood soon - I recommend anyone who wants to move to the next level with their teaching make a bee-live.

Much love to all,
Tamara xxxxxxx
