“This Permaculture Design Course was not a course, it’s so much more than a course. This has been the most impactful, life changing experience that I've ever surrendered to.”
“Quail Springs gave me the confidence to integrate permaculture into all aspects of my life—not just in my backyard garden, but also in my social interaction and community engagement.”
“My learning journey at Quail Springs helped to nurture my presence of mind to be a better and more active listener—a vital trait for the international development professional.”
