Robyn Francis celebrated the teaching of her 150th Permaculture Design Course (PDC) that happened on July 7-21, 2018 at Djanbung Gardens in Nimbin. Permaculture Australia would like to add its congratulations.
Robyn has taught 150 PDCs in 15 different countries, plus as many advanced courses in diverse areas of professional permaculture practices including Teacher Training; Community Facilitation; Ecovillage Design; Sustainable Aid and Development; Social Permaculture; Design for Food Security, and Year-round Food Production. She was one of the key instigators of the Accredited Permaculture Training and has spent 11 years providing full-time accredited vocational training in Permaculture Certificates III, IV and the Diploma of Permaculture. Now thousands of her graduates are doing important work in all continents and climates. Robyn was mentored by Bill Mollison and co-taught with him in the 1980’s.
Robyn has been on the Board of Permaculture Australia for many years and contributed countless hours of her time to the organisation. Thank you!
