Hey y'all! 

For context, I'm probably 150-200 episodes deep into the wheaton labs podcast.  There is no other operation, to my knowledge, that so well blends experimentation, community, and pure belief in utmost sustainability, and I've taken this to be a sort of working model for our fledgling efforts here in the Midwest.

I tried and tried to make PDC/ATC attendance a reality this year - but having a baby due the end of May kind of makes that a non-possibility.  Hence my enthusiasm when the course became open to live-streaming and download.  Thanks thanks thanks for making this a reality.

I have two questions concerning online participation:
1) Will there be avenues for participation in the hands-on aspects of the course?  I am aware I will not be able to remotely put my hands into cob and plaster, but feel this is a crucial part of the learning experience, and am interested in staging work-alongs at our homestead in Greenwood, Missouri.  For the future, I would think this could be a great way to extend the reach of this event - live-stream teaching from Wheaton Labs, and hands-on application in various remotes sites nationally and internationally.  Perhaps if there are other participants in the Kansas-Missouri region, we could combine forces toward this end.
2) Will there be an avenue for online participants to receive the certificate upon completion?  I know this would likely require extra elements to ensure completion.  While it is not a deal-breaker, as learning and community building are my priorities, it would be nice to check the ol' PDC off my list toward future endeavors.

Again, very excited to be joining the event. 

cheers!

I hope you don't mind, but could you, by any chance, pretty please, copy and past your questions into the thread for that?  Here is the the thread:

There was a time that we had no tickets left.  And then we found a way to squeeze in a few more.  And then we had just had 2 of those tickets left.  And then there was comedy and ... as odd as it sounds ... after the dust settled, there will still, mysteriously 2 tickets left.    And now ....




there is only 1 ticket left!

Paul asked me to post an image of the certificate I painted. This is the certificate students will receive upon completion of the permaculture design course.

Due to comedy, we still have one ticket left.  It seems like this is way too late notice for anybody to buy a ticket to somthing like this, but it does seem that for every event we have, there is always one person that buys a ticket at the last minute.
