Hopefully this won't be an inconvenience to anyone, but the current iteration was left in a half-finished state that doesn't hold true to Paul's vision of where PEA should go. Many of the changes are likely to be minor things adapting it to be more of a closed system not requiring one to visit any property aside from the interior of one's dwelling.

Ivar Vasara wrote:Interesting.. so the PEA program won't require access to property? I'm kinda curious about a middle ground program - somewhere in along the lines of "skill to permaculture your suburban lot / garden space". For example, smallish hugulkultur might be viable in some cases or a management of a few fruit trees..

I had an idea for natural building -- one activity could be doing a soil shake test. This would only require going someplace that you can dig up some dirt do the test and put it back if need be. Most apartment dwellers and RV'ers could do this.
