Don't you want to see it before making big plans around it?
Haha! Story of my life. I've only seen the Zack Weiss half of the freebies so far. I'm already super excited and thinking about waaaaaay-over-my-head, purpose-driven-business plans.
0th- Use a data analytic approach to decide a site location with highest (total expected life improving benefit) / (cost+externalities) ratio. Start data logging for publication. Onboard impact investors.
1st- Rent-to-own the best choice of cheap, dry land with highest potential for water enhanced life and education.
2nd- Hire a Zack Wiess-level water-permie to lead a tamara-style groundwater restoration project while training a larger crew. Or a Rusty Davis-level keyline permie Or a....______
3rd- If the project works - buy the land the following year. Grow site into a teaching agro-ecology.
3rd- If the project doesn't work - give the land back to the title holder with apologies. Rinse and repeat with more skill, <$150k expense, and moderate externalities]
4th- Publish results and data regardless of success]
My apologies about the off-topic.
I gotta just buy y'alls video series now. I intend to buy the big one because we mostly live off-grid with bad internet... HD will look better on a projector... you have a VIP permie instructor cast, so even though videos probably work precisely in the way I intend - its still supporting yall.
With the download stuff: please be sure to respect my copyright and not make copies. I only mention this because it seems your intent is to share. I think sharing the view with you in the room is good. That's the way respecting with digital works.

One question, though: There are references to the course notes that should be on a private forum on permies. Do we onliner's get access to those notes?
Would like to upgrade to the tiny download of ATC but am blackballed by PayPal (long, very unpleasant story about the power of THE MAN, or in this case, THE NOT-MY-(pay)PAL).
Any payment options available besides paypal?
Don't you get the option to pay with credit card without logging in to paypal?
Nope. Blackballed. "Your credit card couldn't be processed. Please try another card."
When I contact the bank, they say PayPal never even attempted a transaction. It's killed before exiting PayPal's system.
So, it's something in their system that forbids my cards even if I don't login etc. Have cleared cookies/cache etc - no joy.
I've been dealing with this for several months and haven't been able to locate anybody who could explain it much less fix it. Even had a face-to-face w/a PayPal "rep" in Phoenix who simply regurgitated the "help" response for that error.
THE MAN is trying to keep me DOWN!
In the mean time, please holler if there's another way to purchase the tiny download.
