Over the last year The Big Fix and the Blue Mountains Permaculture Institute ran a groundbreaking Permaculture and Social Enterprise Design Program which resulted in what we've called a PDC+ and which led young people aged 16-24ish to learn traditional Permaculture Design Skills + Social Enterprise Design Skills. As well as the traditional 72 hr course, young people were then mentored for over 6 months to develop their enterprises.

This has resulted in the formation of the Blue Mountains Pluriversity and Edgy BM - a Collaborative Social Enterprise Incubator where young people are experimenting with creating and developing their own meaningful enterprises to tackle the world's challenges.

We are now thrilled to be opening bookings for this program again. You can view the content of the first individualised badge awarded through the Pluriversity for this program here: bmpluriversity.org/badges/

and, if you're 16-24ish, you can now apply to do this free training here: bit.ly/2L4uK0i

Game of Thrones ended this week, but a far greater story that has spread around the world and inspired individuals and communities everywhere is the story of Permaculture. It's a story that shows us how we're an integral part of the natural world, and offers ethics and principles to apply to all our decision making moving forward. It's theoretical and practical and provides us with the tools to transform gardens, farms, landscapes, communities and social systems, to create a more resilient future for us all, and for all life.

Lis Bastian, from the Blue Mountains Permaculture Institute and The Big Fix will be sharing this life-changing story with an Introduction to Permaculture at Rahamim Ecology Centre in Bathurst on Saturday and Sunday 29 & 30 June, 2019.

Bookings are now open via bit.ly/2We9v3W
