My name is Josh. Attending the 11 days with Sepp, but not only because of the amazing opportunity to learn from Sepp. Mr. Holzer is to be considered a force of nature in my opinion, but if one wants to really learn why the clouds dropped the rain it takes more than just watching the storm. I believe that I can learn from Sepp a number of things that cannot be envisioned now that will probably come as a surprise to me, but more important for the long run is inspiration to continue my efforts to start a farm. The energy of being in a place that is in the direction of becoming a Permaculture farm is the perfect setting to be in for this. The onus is strong to learn, network, and grow way beyond what 11 days can expose me to. I'd like to extend a greeting
to those of you who will be there and those of you who will interact via this forum all of whom I hope will become my Permaculture contemporaries.
1. Establish a productive Permaculture farm within 5 years
2. Provide sustainable/ energy efficient/ food forested low-moderate income rental housing
3. Reduce my carbon footprint. (Living in South Africa and commuting to Alaska for seasonal work I have a lot to account for in regards to my carbon footprint)
4. If the Michael Pilarski PDC was not booked out then that would have been on my agenda also, working on making it happen in the future.
Looking forward to meeting you,
