When Jesus Ruiz sent through his order for a Keyline Plow to the office of the Yeomans Plow Company they apparently didn't know what was going on....they knew the plow was good but it must be good if Jesus wants one!
Jesus is a professional surveyor who attended the very 1st Keyline course in the EU in 2007 (organised by EcoHabitar and PermaCultura-es) and since then has been extremely active in extending much Keyline knowledge & practice across Iberia and working with our Latin American colleagues such as COAS (especially Eugenio Gras). Jesus has developed a great version of the Keyline SuperPlow based on the model that Ben Falloon and I put together (and laterly Ned RocknRoll) that he hoiks around Iberia behind his Subaru!
In Latino cyberspace Jesus has put on line a heap of materials around our course work in both Spain & Mexico up online for few viewing on his otherwise excellent website www.lineaclave.org (lineaclave = Keyline in Spanish).
These materials range include:
6 day Keyline Design Course in Brihuega, Castilla La Mancha, Spain, 2007
7 day COAS Keyline Course in El Arenal, Jalisco, Mexico, 2009
Plus a heap of other material including video's featuring the late, great Masanobu Fukuoka and many others....
All of these courses are bilingual in with me being expertly and indefatigably interpreted by Charlie, Ana, Eugenio & Antonio from Australian English to Spanish. Thanks also to Hugo, Antonio etc for videoing and editing this material.
I don't know if there are any other complete video's of PDC's on the internet. Whatever the case I probably will never get another booking at any of my courses now so thanks Jesus! We still have a few up our sleeve's though that are yet to reach cyberland - give it time though....
Thanks again to Jesus and all the others involved. We do enjoy the Latin spirit expressed by people like Jesus, Ana Digon, Antonio Scotti, Eugenio Gras, Jairo Restrepo, Sebastiao Pinhiero and many others of getting things out there and expressing those great Permaculture Principles of 'Accelerating Succession & Evolution' and 'Positivism' by following that great dictum of 'Cooperation not Competition....
All the best,
Get me the mayor's office! I need to tell her about this tiny ad:
