I would like to hear from people who have attended classes with Sepp. Reason: my spring is outrageously full, I've been canceling commitments, and need some encouragement before I actually register for this. Thanks.

Disclaimer: I have not attended a class with Sepp.

From what I've read and heard from others, If you don't have a seriously solid grasp of permaculture, you may find yourself lost and frustrated with Sepp. Part of it is the language barrier. Part of it is Sepp's gruff personality that some have found off-putting. I suspect that Sepp expects that you've read and understand his work to a degree that he shouldn't have to cover the basics all over again. It's tough to get a straight answer that you'll find satisfying if you can't accurately explain things in "permaculture terminology.

Asking about specific seed blends and mixes will likely get you an answer of "Try it and see what happens. I can't do it all for you. You must learn for yourself what works best for you".

I know there are some podcasts about it from Paul. Certainly worth checking that out.
