Hey, where you from in Alberta? I’m in Medicine Hat?

Hey Cole, I am in Edmonton. I am pretty new here, as I originally came from the Westcoast. I do love Alberta now though. I am googling medicine Hats location right now! 😛2013-11-11 at 8:00 pm #23603
Oh, you should have stayed on the West Coast… I think it’s better weather than Edmonton haha 🙂 . Medicine Hat is the sunniest place in Canada… or at least that’s what we say.2013-11-11 at 8:32 pm #23604
well I dont know about that, I adore the sunshine here, and the coast has none of it. All rainy and depressing all the time. I can handle the cold, especially when the sun arrives with it. So why are you taking this course? Have you gotten anything good from it yet?2013-11-12 at 4:38 pm #23675
ah yeah, all that is true too 🙂 . Well I’m taking it because I find it really interesting and would like to make a job out of it someday – as a designer or a farmer or whatever works. You could probably say I haven’t gotten anything that ISN’T good out of it yet. I would be really curious how you find it being a designer already.2013-12-15 at 1:43 pm #30725
Hello Sonja 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 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!2014-01-04 at 4:18 pm #36687
