I’m working on an urban planning degree through that I really got turned on to permaculture and the benefits that it can have for the environment. I thought I was going to have to wait a while to raise the kind of money I’d need for a permaculture course so I was really happy to see this online version as an alternative. I can’t wait to see how it’ll work online!2013-09-10 at 8:10 am #22014

Hello Andrea 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!2014-02-03 at 11:51 am #44659
I’m from Montreal as well… Purchasing a small farm in the Outaouais region (Quebec side). We’ll be starting a small organic farm this spring, growing vegetables organically and selling them in local farmer’s markets and delivering them weekly in baskets under a CSA model.
I’m very interested in Permaculture principles. I’m looking to gain knowledge here so that I can use it to develop a food forest on the land around our homestead and to explore how I can integrate the principles in our production.
I’m really happy to find this course, not just because it is free 🙂 but because it is online. One of the main obstacles to doing a full PDC, for me is that I won’t have the time to dedicate to it come this spring.2014-03-10 at 6:09 am #47574
