" I was studying architecture at Australian university when I took the PDC Course at Noosa Forest Retreat. After the PDC course I applied for a job at a prominent Queensland Ecological Architecture firm before I finished my degree. Utilising the knowledge and confidence I obtained in the PDC I have not only secured a job with a great architecture organisation but also had the opportunity to return to Noosa Forest Retreat and present my developing interest on permaculture and architecture. Thank you Noosa Forest Retreat for a great course, life changing experience and ongoing community support."
