Prob many of you have seen this, I am trying to learn more about permaculture, I dont have a high level of education, I have a short attention span which grows much much shorter when I am trying to read things that I simply cannot grasp so I look to videos. They are typically short and the breaks allow my mind to intake and process.  Id like to know more about permaculture, specifically the steps I can take to make my property a sustainable source of sustainability.

Below the video they mention that they both started out with ........ two Permaculture Design Certificates............Im wondering what is this? Again Id like to better understand how I can become more self sufficient and develop my property in a way that makes more sense.

I can do it, Ive done everything Ive ever wanted to do and more thru my hard work and determination.

Thanks for any tips.

PDC is a certification that cost around $2,500. And with this certification, one is able to officially teach others, easily making $40,000 per year if marketed properly. With this certification you can also charge extra when you do landscaping.

Some folks might have gotten a PDC certification with a 'specialization' on things to do in say frigid North Dakota, but say they moved to tropical Belize, they might take another $2,500 course that focus more on tropical systems.

An yes their is so much to learn about permaculture.

Soil, Orchard, Vegetables, Meat/Animals, Building shells, Buildings HVAC systems, non-toxic furnitures/cleaning supplies, food preservation, waste management, water/energy conservation. There are even things on human-group side of permaculture like non-violent communication, (be nice policy).
