Geoff Lawton's online PDC was life altering for me. I'm extremely thankful I took this course.
One thing that helped me was to go outside an observe when that was talked about. Dig a hole in the soil when that was part of the topic. Sending in soil samples for testing when that came up. If I was able, I attempted to implement, even if only in a small way whatever was discussed (if applicable to my environment). Making an A frame level & pegging my yard helped me understand that concept - I'm a hands on learner. A friend's yard would work if an apartment dweller.
Highly recommend taken advantage of the price break on 'The Designer's Manual' if at all possible. Geoff has the book with him in the classroom & teaches from it.
This opportunity is well worth the money & time.
Have fun!

This was my first PDC & changed how I view my surroundings forever in a most positive way. I'm extremely glad I spent the money & time. The positive remarks voiced already express my satisfaction & delight.

Hi Jennifer
I use Dr Bronner's Sal Suds for stove, floors, etc. Does the job for me. Windows, I use white vinegar.
Edited for recipes I've used.
For stove, etc - Borax, washing soda & a squirt of Dr Bronner's liquid soap in a spray bottle of warm water shaken well. This does need to be wiped with clean water rinse. Found this online (sorry, it was so long ago I can't site credit, my apologies).
I'm interested in what others have found to work.

I too used electric clippers to cut the male head hair in my household for years, still cut my Dad's.
Cut my own middle of back length hair with barber scissors that I've had for so long I don't remember when/where they came from. Still work beautifully as I don't use them for anything else (like pruning herbs or cutting flowers ).

Count me in. The book is packed with so much information. What an added bonus having discussions about it with you all.
