“And then there is the most dangerous risk of all -- the risk of spending your life not doing what you want on the bet you can buy yourself the freedom to do it later.”


― Randy Komisar



I want to be a permculture teacher. But up until now I haven't been able. I don't have the money to quit my job. I don't have a PDC. I don't have the money for a PDC. I have no-one to teach and no place to teach them. So I've been putting my effort into my current job in the hopes someday I'll be able to get my dream job.

Here's the problem I don't like to bet. I've bet the last 4 years of my life that something will change. While things have changed, I'm still not where I want to be.
So it's time to stop betting and start doing. I don't need to be paid to teach

I'm going to start a youtube channel dedicated to explaining simple permaculture concepts.
I need to source a camera and choose a channel name.
First lesson is on swales.

Can you start a permaculture meetup in your area? Do you have a yard or a friend with a yard where you can practice permaculture and teach through demonstration?

Been there. Done that. Went back for more. But this time, I took this tiny ad with me:
