At Midnight, Geoff will explain the course in a new video that will be up on his site. How much is it ($1000)? What do you get and is it worth doing? For answers to these questions download the guidebook/leaflet now:

“This is the course students rave about on Online forums. Its the course that experienced Permaculture teachers take to broaden their understanding. Its coming your way in a few hours.

Download the guidebook (link above) that explains all you need to know to enroll in Geoff Lawton’s Online Permaculture Design Course. Its an intensive 12 Week Course with Certification that was such a hit with students last year. This course sells out very quickly and will not be offered again this year. On completion you will have two bonus courses to enjoy online. Geoff’s famous Earthworks Course and his new 2014 Reading the Landscape Course.”

Pass this information onto someone who you think would like to sign up and learn more. I promise you they’ll be no holding hands and singing “Kum Ba Yah Ma Lord”!! :o) 

To be honest I think this online course would have been much better suited for me personally than the one I took locally. They looks like there’s a huge wealth of information here too that is likely hard to find anywhere else. He offers a 30 day money back guarantee so if it turns out you changed your mind or it’s not for you then get your money back in full, what have you got to lose, go for it (no I’m not on commission haha)

Use A Solar/Sun Compass When Planning Your Designs

Sun Compass

“A compass is of course a vital tool for determining the orientation of your plot. Illustrated is a ‘solar compass’ which is also useful for working out sun sectors e.g. where the sun will rise and set and its highest point in the sky at different times of the year.”

I Completed My Permaculture Design Certificate

Hello everyone, sorry I haven’t updated the blog in a long time, life has been really hectic over the last few months. Thankfully things seem to be looking up so I’ve decided to again get back into promoting growing your own food and living sustainability! 

So yes I’ve completed my PDC with Wilf Richards (Abundant Earth) in County Durham, loved the course, so many interesting people and helped put a lot of things I’ve been reading about into perspective and a much better understanding of the “People Care” and “Fair Share” aspects of Permaculture. I don’t think I’ll be doing the Diploma any time soon but I would like to one day when I get the time, need to prioritise a few other things first.

I’d encourage people to attend a course if it’s something you’ve been interested in, if you don’t you’ll only be left thinking “what if…”.
