ON-LINE PERMACULTURE DESIGN COURSES

A List Compiled by Michael Pilarski

Skeeter has put together a list of some of the on-line Permaculture Design Courses out there. They certainly have their place. Take a real-life, face to face PDC if you can. Regardless, get your hands dirty. As Skeeter says "You cannot become skilled at permaculture by sitting in an armchair." Have a look.

About 20 folks attended. It was cold, sometimes windy. The sun poked out for brief periods, much appreciated. The fire helped.

The Classic Texts Downloadable for your Agriculture Library

Wisdom from agricultural heroes

Per the website owner:

This website provides downloadable e-books about radical agriculture, natural hygiene/nature cure and self-sufficient homestead living. There are secondary collections involving social criticism and transformational psychology.

No payment is required.

The library explores the connection between agricultural methods and the health or illness of animals and humans. A study of these materials reveals how to prevent and heal disease and increase longevity, suggests how to live a more fulfilling life and reveals social forces working against that possibility.
