Hi my name is Nick, my wife and family will be moving to Idaho this summer. So I am interested in finding out about permaculture design principles in order to assist in the purchase of a property when we move there. Looking around the Boise area which is a zone seven hardiness zone.2013-12-28 at 3:43 pm #35421

Hello Nick and welcome to the Online Permaculture Design Course!
I am really thrilled that you have chosen to join us for this world-changing program. With many tens of thousands of enrolled students, this is the world’s largest permaculture education course, and we’re really quite excited to share this knowledge with you.
I want to take a moment to let you know about a few options that can help you get the most out of your learning experience with us:
– Our instructors answer questions on these forums, and we generally really encourage you to participate in the forums as much as you can, as it will really help you engage with this material in the best possible way. You are encouraged to post any questions you may have about the lectures or general permaculture questions.
– The course itself is offered completely free of charge (no catch, no gotcha, nothing). We also offer the same material on DVD (so you can watch it on your television) and you can purchase the DVD sets @ http://www.regenerative.com/dvd
– We do offer the internationally-standard Permaculture Design Certificate as an option with this course. The certificate program includes an experiential design project and examination; the design project can be for virtually any topic, including your own property. You can learn more about the certification @ http://www.regenerative.com/certificate
If you agree that the knowledge we offer in these lectures is worthwhile, we encourage you to support the continued development of this program by purchasing the DVD sets and the certification. The DVD sets also make truly fantastic gifts for friends and loved ones, and are a great way to introduce other people to permaculture (consider donating a set of DVDs to your local library!).
Again, welcome on-board. I encourage you to take a moment to post on the other forums. If you have any questions, please post them in the Technical Questions or the Q&A forums (/forums). On behalf of our entire team, we hope that you enjoy this program and look forward to seeing you take this knowledge into the wild!2015-06-16 at 3:20 pm #57829

Nick and family,
How was the property finding? If good, have you began implementing sustainable permaculture methodologies and strategies?

Just stopping by to say hello and welcome to some future Idahoans. 😉 We live near the pointy part of Idaho. Permaculture design is so interesting to me and I too am excited to learn more about it all. 🙂
