Refunds and payments policy PDF Print E-mail


We offer a range of payment options for students, which can be viewed on each course webpage. Unless otherwise stated on the course webpage, earlybird prices and deposit options are available up until 6 weeks before the course start date.

If you chose the deposit payment option, your balance of payment is due 4 weeks before the course start date, for which we will email you an invoice.

If your balance payment is not received by 2 weeks out from the course start date, your booking will be cancelled and your deposit forfeited.


We understand that sometimes circumstances change and you may not be able to attend a course that you have paid for.

Unless otherwise stated on the course's webpage (some events have no refunds available), as long as you notify us at least 14 days prior to the commencement of the course, your options are:

  • a refund of your course fee, less an administration fee of $75
  • a credit the full amount towards any future course.

If you notify us of your need to cancel within fourteen days of your course commencement, your booking is not refundable or transferable to another course.

HOWEVER you can get someone else to come in your place, just let us know. In the unlikely event that we are forced to cancel a course you will promptly receive a full refund.

"Permaculture is a philosophy of working with, rather than against nature; of protracted & thoughtful observation rather than protracted & thoughtless labour; & of looking at plants & animals in all their functions, rather than treating any area as a single-product system."
