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.

Refunds + credits are not available within 14 days of a course's commencement.

However, if you do wish to cancel within 14 days, give us a call - if your course has a waiting list, we'll do our best to fill your place from our waiting list. If we are successful, we can credit your course fee towards future courses.

"The ecologically-destructive path we are on is as if all of humanity is in a giant car heading towards a brick wall at 100 miles per hour. Everyone in it is arguing about where to sit. Permaculturalists are some of the only ones who know how to put on the brakes and turn the wheel
