This is a 36 hour webcast you can download for free from on iTunes from North Carolina State University. It is video, so eats about 10 GB of usage for the whole series. We watched the first hour last night and will be watching the whole series. Definitely worth it from what we can tell.

Thank you! I didn't know there was an Alaska permaculture site! (Alaska is my home state.)

I've been watching it (thanks for the link). I've watched the first two and some of the third as I was falling asleep. So far they haven't done anything. I am sure it will get better as it is an actual college class (the first few classes are usually admin/primer regardless of the material). The teacher is hilarious to me because he reminds me of a drum teacher I had when I was young, but I shall leave my personal thoughts at that.
-First class was roll call and a lengthy go around the room to meet each student.
-Second class was the teacher's personal thoughts on sustainability and current affairs, and he introduces the text books and mentions he has a hernia.
You can definitely start from the third lecture without missing much except the names of the text books. I do imagine that the class gets good and am very happy that I have the entire class in my itunes thanks to the op.
Thanks for that breakdown eggdogg. Let us know what you think about class 3 onward.
onemidtomidnight--do you agree about starting with class 3?
Ya about there. There is a little info in 2, if i remember right. It really kicks in in episode 3.
The first lesson has zero pictorial images of use really and its an introduction.. I would state that its probably better to leave it out if downloading is an issue....
However lesson two and three is where it gets more interesting however use of graphics is limited until the end of lesson 3 towards the end of the lecture.
Hope this helps I'm absolutely loving the lectures. .-) Bill Hookers got a way of saying "lets look at this reality" which makes me smile..
Hi Henry, hope your membership has been approved!
Rather than duplicate post, here's a link to all 36 lectures in mp4 format, each compressed into a .zip file:

Be sure to thank Jock for all of his hard work in making this complete course available as an alternate to the iTunes version originally posted. Being such a smaller size, even I can download them now!
go to itunes. go to the itunes store. punch "hs 432 intro to permaculture" into the seacrh bar (upper right corner).

I've tried this over and over and it just doesn't come up. I'd like to be able to listen to this with iTunes but just can't seem to find it. Suggestions?

I've been in communication with Mr. Hooker and he is very enthusiastic about folks learning via his downloaded courses. He provided me with this link of a more recent course which was taught in Fall 2010, and said that it will eventually be on itunesU as well. It includes the field trips.
I'm having the same results as Dori. Is there any way to download those files from somewhere else? I've never used iTunes, Can you actually "download" the files (video included) or are you just listening to them from the internet?
