INTRODUCTION TO PERMACULTURE – COURSE INFORMATION
Make sure you read this important course information and contact us for any further inquiries.
About your teachers
Tonielle Christensen, Blake Hudson and Jay Jackson are permaculture designers at Organic Motion, providing design services for abundant edible landscapes. They love to facilitate workshops in the far North Queensland region and feel that 'hands on' practical projects, experienced with a like-minded team, is the best way to learn. They are advocates for the Earthbag building technique and urban food producing, so naturally, they work to empower people to grow their own food and medicine. They are dedicated to providing more accessible pathways to learning and practice permaculture, to effectively crEate abundance and regenerate the earth.
Deposit and payments
If a deposit is requested, it is to secure your place in the nominated workshop. To receive any offered discounts, the total amount must be paid by the stated date listed for each option. Once those dates pass, the deposit will be held for the full fee ticket. If it is a 'special' course offer, then the full amount is requested upfront.
Payment can be paid by credit card, direct deposit, cash and part Bartles (local energy trading LETS) and payment plans may be available if required. Please Contact us if you have any questions.

Cancellation and Refunds Policy
If you are unable to make this course, you are welcome to put it towards one of our future courses, or we encourage you to pass on your place to a nominated person, perhaps family or friend member so they can make the most of this opportunity.

If cancellations occur after the 30 days time frame before the start course date, then a refund, minus deposit fee, may only occur if another paid participant (from the waiting list or elsewhere) fills your place.
