Design course online

I am not planning on getting certified in permaculture. I just want to learn the concepts and apply them to my life. My life doesn't currently allow me to take a live course.

I originally was given a link to this course on the Internet. It was from his first year of teaching this course. Then I explored iTunes and found it. It is interesting how his ideas have evolved.

I am enjoying the ideas, the stories and his examples. I am able to view the information at my own speed. It has been invaluable for picking up Permaculture Books.
