You may want to get the Permaculture Designer's Manual, by Bill Mollison before the course, and I always recommend Gaia's Garden, by Toby Hemengway as a great starter, which is easier to read than the manual.  If you get your books from Amazon, you can get them from our page, or just check out what other books we suggest at 

Please feel free to contact me directly if you have any questions or concerns.  Below are the links to the course and the course plus housing.  As always, my goal is to make this one of the best and most useful courses you have ever taken.

Your PDC instructor,
