Hi Permies,

In early May, Verge’s long-awaited book, Building Your Permaculture Property, will be released (with rave reviews from some of the most recognized thought-leaders in permaculture!).

And to celebrate, nearly twenty world-renowned permaculture experts are gathering for a one-of-a-kind online event. We'd love to have you join April 23-25 for this permaculture gathering like no other...


Three Days of Expert Strategies and Tactics to Transform Your Permaculture Property from Dream to Reality








Building a permaculture property is a never-ending maze of trying to do the right thing,
at the right time, in the right place, in the right amount.




BUT ALL THAT'S GOING TO CHANGE!

Land stewards everywhere struggle with the complexities of transforming a design into a flourishing, resilient regenerative property….

Whether you’re a starry-eyed new PDC grad seeking your perfect property, or a well-read permie trying to repurpose the land you have, you’ll find answers and inspiration in this gathering of the most respected thought leaders in permaculture.


The Building Your Permaculture Property Book Launch & Global Summit

If we can't watch it live can we register and watch it later?

Also, a friend just sent me a link to a video of you touring some of your system.  It was pretty awesome, great work! Will you be speaking at the summit?

Is the summer going to be available on line after it is over for those who want to see it but are on the road this weekend?

Thank you so much for all the hard work Takota! I am so excited, and I literally did get babysitting situated as my birthday gift this weekend! I NEVER get to watch things like these ‘live’ so I’m really looking forward to it.

I just started listening to your podcast a bit, too. We’re designing a home right now so the episode on building a healthy home was very enlightening. Luckily, my husband is on board to pay more for no VOC paint.. though not much else. I think the paint will be super important.
*I’m chemically sensitive a tad, but not too much. I think diet helped me get it under control more.

Thank you Rob, Michelle and Takota for that marathon of knowledge and insight!!! It was obviously a lot of work. Very much appreciated!!! Content creators like you and your guests who make it free to learn have made permaculture so much more accessible.

Anyone else reading their book? Anyone want to be my accountability partner? I could also make a thread for finding accountability partners

I’m reading it! And I still need an accountability partner! I asked a local friend but they never responded and they don’t even have the book so working through it with you would be better.

I am in Texas so if you want a partner with a more similar climate feel free to keep looking.

I’m on the clarity chapter, getting ready to sit down and catalog my different forms of assets and get my 9 vision statements.

Hi Rob. This is Claude from northern Brazil. After watching the BYPP Summit, it convinced me to buy the BYPP Bundle. However, because I live in Brazil, I would need to wait 'till the middle of June to enjoy the book I ordered. So the question I have for you is; Have you ordered the Bundle also?
Thanks - Claude

@Ashley Cottonwood, @Rebecca Blake, and @Claude Marceau

I had the opportunity to watch all three days worth of the Summit and during that time frame I also purchased the bundle, which included the book and a mini-course that was recorded as the book was being finalized and a few other perks.
I have read most of the book and watched and read through all of the first mini-course.
I have to go back now and rewatch everything and actually do the "homework" which they call practices, starting at Step 0.

I may need to get an accountability partner, perhaps from here on permies.com - I live rural - hardly see my neighbors - we have to go out of our way to keep in touch.

I thought I was in a BSk zone, but after using some of the BYPP templates I see that I'm in a Cfb climate, hardiness zone 6A at 6,800 ft. in New Mexico, near the Sangre De Cristo Mts.

I am very grateful for a PROCESS, a set of generalized steps that I can customize to suit my context.
I still have to hone what my context is, but I've got a good start on that.

The quality of this book is excellent, well built, sturdy, great paper and print quality and the material it covers is very well done.

My only criticism of the Building Your Permaculture Property material is that the one thought that kept coming back to me was Paul Wheaton's idea that "Thou Shalt Not Should On Others."
Aside from that - this is the materials I was looking for.

I recently completed the PDC (without certification) from Nicholas Burtner's School of Permaculture - which was/is something I very much needed.
I say "completed" but my own "final" design is still a work in progress as I go back and rewatch stuff within the course and improve upon the plans for my own property.

I've posted small snippets about my property here in the permies forums and I've recently started uploading a few videos to my YT channel, "rojer".
I may start focussing on my implementation of what and how I am applying the BYPP material at my home, it's NahTah Homestead.

I've been lurking and learning permaculture since about 2009 or so and only now am I beginning to start serious work towards a regenerative lifestyle.
So if there is a thread added to the permies forum about accountability partners - I am interested.

@Claude Marceau - Claud, Hopefully you will soon receive the email with the link to start using the student dashboard and begin watching the mini-course material.
It follows along with the book very well. The book does have some additional material - but not so much as to be a show-stopper.
The "toolkit" that should show on the dashboard has a zip file with most if not all of the templates and printables.
You can start that right away.
It's all good stuff!
Good Luck in your learning and doing processes.

Yes, but you need to purchase their ‘bundle’ to get access to the recordings.

Did you find someone? I'm just starting to figure out what to do with my 7.75 acres and would love to have someone to discuss things with. I haven't found anyone in S Pierce County, (WA state) who is interested.
