We've all been busy over the past couple of days, working in groups to complete the survey, analysis and design for our assigned permaculture sites. Then we had to design a presentation to show and tell an audience about the process we went through.
Now, one day after the official closing ceremony of the first Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC) course in Lebanon, I am proud to present the first batch of permaculturists graduating right here in Lebanon:
