Happy to hear of your arrival Andrew. I'm looking forward to learning what you have to share. I am new to the tradition of permaculture and I'm anxious to apply it to my life.

Andrew's PDC is excellent. He and Marisha do a really good job of maximizing the advantages of the online format and making it work well.

Andrew - I'll post some updates when I get a chance on my progress implementing the design on my site. Some of the neighbors think I'm crazy, which means I'm on the right track. (Some others are watching closely to see if it's something they could imitate.)

Welcome Andrew,

Could you tell me how often the ePDC you teach is available?
I have been looking for a design intensive PDC, and it seems your course would be perfect. I'd like to plan to take one in the future, but wonder on the frequency of the course.

Also, huge thanks for the keyline videos from southern oregon! great to see mature systems in place and working.
keep up the great work.

Kelly

Kelly,
We run the course three times per year. fall, winter and spring terms at OSU. The fall and spring classes are non-credit and less expensive, open to anyone without having to enter the university system. The winter term course is for-credit, and costs 1/3 more. It's the same class, you just get OSU credits for it if you are earning a degree in something.

Thanks for the feedback on the videos! I wish I had time to make more right now because I've got a few good ones in my head, but it'll have to wait.

Take care,

Andrew

Welcome! I'm glad to see more and more permaculture information becoming available. I'm perusing your site looking for ideas. I'm meeting with my admin next week with a proposal to start a school garden (in Phoenix, AZ). My goal is to learn about and incorporate permaculture practices into the school garden and the students. So much to learn, so much to pass on to our next generation of young adults. I am grateful for forums like this, and classes like yours.

Hello and Welcome "Professor Millison". This is going to be so timely and informative to so many of us. I'm a newbie, so Thanks, I need just what you have to share.
I hope we can soak up as much as you're willing to lay on us.
