I would purchase access to online videos, about specific topics, accessible 24/7.
Personally, I like the idea of offering our workshops to perhaps just a handful of in-person, hands-on people, and having video in place to offer it in webinar format - both live and accessible 24/7.
It means having the people and equipment for that available. When I mentioned it to Paul, it was akin to mentioning we'll build a taj mahal because we're still simply trying to get some basics in place.
The webinar piece is the space I have been putting a lot of thought in lately. I think some of the How To's lend themselves nicely to this format. What if this was presented in a Power Point style with short videos embedded? Or the videos could be on YouTube and accessed by the facilitator. I think the webinar would eliminate the travel / time constraint on folks.
The videos would take some time and commitment from people at the lab. But.... I don't think all of the work would have to be done from there.
If I were to do something like "How To Hugelkultur" it would look like this:
Session: 90 - 120 minutes.
What is Hugelkultur?
What wood to use or avoid?
How do you layer it? (5-10 minute video for this)
Small scale / broad scale.
How the heck do you keep the sides that steep? (5-10 minute video for this)
On contour versus not on contour? (5-10 minute video for this)
TEFA (10-15 minute video for this)
Sun scoop for microclimate. (5-10 minute video for this showing the sun angle calculation to warm that specific area two months before planting)
How to create a Cooling microclimate?
Hugelkultur combined with a terrace. (5-10 minute video for this)
Seed mix for 3 climates. Cool to cold, Dry, Tropic
Q&A at the end with Paul
The Power Point slides could be sent to the people that attended. So they would have a take away. And the software used to show the Power Point can also be 'recorded'. So that people could watch it over and over and people that didn't attend the live session could still watch. That would give it 24/7 availability.
