PDC online with Geoff Lawton second week

Posted by Lorenzo Costa over 4 years ago

we're getting into the real stuff!!

Well, week two has ended. I was quite busy at work and in the weekend on my land cleaning the access road, now I can get in and out easily. Thats working on the mainframe as Geoff taught us!

Ok, week two started with the certainty that I needed a notebook to write down some stuff. After A while it just started to get bundled up in my head. Wow the lessons are so jam packed with info that you can't keep up. 

I must say reading through Bill Mollisons designers manual after having followed the lessons is great, it's much easier. Geoff gives you a key to understand Mollisons words, it's not that they are so complicated but one has to get into the authors mind a bit, and Geoff helps a lot.

Week two was on concepts and themes big stuff, really the base on which to think about constantly. As Geoff puts it we have to be certain of the concepts, if we're not sure just come back watch the videos again and go on.

This is the great thing about the online course. You can go back and forth, everytime you want, we all say and write this but it's true!

I'm getting more into the interactive stuff, really I still don't ask much under the lessons but I'll get there. 

The forums are awesome, after two weeks now they are really hitting hard. Everyday new topics get started by my fellow coursemates and you get them on everything, from who has terraced land? or sun angles, plant databases, etc.

I don't know how many there are but I guess more than a hundred (ok I went to the course site and counted them: 115 topics!!) Do you realize 115 topics of discussion on permaculture, step by step, and on all sorts of subjects after just two weeks!
