My life is torn between two pursuits--permaculture because it uses all my skills and works toward a better world, and teaching in the public schools which allows me health insurance, income, and some impact on young people. To keep my teaching license, I need to earn six credits every five years. Usually, teachers just take the cheapest on-line courses to meet what can be a pricey way to maintain one's licensure. I would really like someone out there to allow me to purchase some credits from a credited university confirming my skills and knowledge in Permaculture. I've looked at On-line Courses that offer a certificate but no credits.

I've considered finding a fellow faculty member at the college where I teach as an adjunct, but no one has permaculture experience. Indeed, if someone were teaching such a course, it'd be me.

I'd be willing to pay $450 for three credits. Some professor wouldn't even have to do much work.

Any ideas? Any takers?

Douglas, did you get any further with finding somewhere that'll give you credits for your permaculture studies?

I think this would be a massive boost to the legitimacy of permaculture and help expand the empire...
