Hey Folks, I'm here in Vermont, right out side of Burlington. Like "Jadeapple" I found this program with Google. It's great that it was so accessible. But the synchronicity of finding this program right now and the idea of finding it on "Google" (billion-dollar-spy-engine-corporation) is a perfect example of the paradox of these times.
I'm developing an "eco-village" in vermont. We already have 20 ares of flat farm land 10 acres are hay fields and 10 acres will be other crops. Our intentional community will most likely settle on a 175 acre mountain in Monkton, VT. A few of my friends have already taken a Permaculture courses and a few studies similar veins at the University of Vermont. As a cofounder of our project I try to keep growing in all directions. I think a Permaculture Design course is exactly what I'm looking for right now. I'm a good self-educator and a passionate learner. I hope to have some great dialog and make the most out of learning online. I'll be setting up a blog over the weekend. Thanks again

Hello again Benny, we've talked already through email so its great to see you made it in here :) The eco village sounds very interesting. We have a few like them here in New Zealand.. I'll get the guy I know who knows more about the NZ ones to send links and info for you.
The face to face group here has already formed a team to design a living campus here. Its a project that has been given some seed money so we'll see how it goes. I was in Melbourne Australia last week to check out similar projects. Was most inspired by the CERES Community Environment Park. Grabbed an interview with one of the coordinators there.
