Beyond all expectations

Posted by sheila grace almost 8 years ago

From the moment the first words were uttered in the 2013 PRI online course I was hooked. Geoff’s Zen like delivery and the PRI offering of an online course was brilliant.

For a person with a background in environmental sciences and natural ability for pattern association, I have been on fire since taking this course.

By applying the knowledge and information from the 2013 course, this degraded property has transformed itself in 3 short years and our relationship with this place has deepened – exactly as promised. I couldn’t begin to list all of the advances that have occurred, so see it for yourself on the website I set up just after taking the class: http://columbiabasinpermaculture.com/

Be forewarned, my blog is not just about the tangible on-the-ground projects, it's also about pattern awareness of the 'larger' world. Observation is just the beginning, the real work is in its applications to be a better human and give something back. Permaculture is about positivism and awareness is very much a part of that process. 

That course gave me the courage to start the projects and the website, but it’s way beyond courage now - this has become my life’s work.
