MAKING IT REAL Through our programs, our aim is to create a diverse, interactive, hands on and exciting learning environment based on dynamic processes and activities, immersing participants in their own permaculture journey. We have a philosophy at Savour Soil of 'Making it real'.
"I first met Michael around four years ago, when I was getting more involved with my readings around Permaculture. I first enrolled in the 'Permaculture Primer - An Introduction to Permaculture' Course and realized that this was answering a lot of the questions that I had in my mind. Since then I have completed many courses with Michael and he has become a good friend and mentor. I really do appreciate the time and effort that Michael puts into planning and implementing his courses. They are we’ll structured with well researched information and experience rich. I would recommend the services and educational courses offered by Savour Soils. I have always come away highly energised and motivated from his workshops!" - John Mitchell
