Permaculture Course Presenters

David Johnson is an experienced teacher who has worked with all ages from primary through to adult. He is currently enjoying a balancing act between part-time teaching, music and earthier pursuits on his 47 acre property at Penrose, where he keeps bees, chooks and a rather rotund sow.
David, with a Science degree background, studied for his PDC with Phillip Booth (1990) and also with David Holmgren (1993). He has coordinated the Introductory Permaculture and Design Certificate classes for Permaculture Southern Highlands since 1993.
In 2002 he was awarded a Diploma in Permaculture in the fields of Education and Media.
In 2009 he added the Permaculture Certificate IV to his CV to enable teaching under AQF accredited courses.

David also offers a range of Permaculture Consultancy options - from Pre-Purchase Inspections to Site Evaluations to Site Design and Design Implementation. See his website for details.
