Andrew Millison is the creator of this free Intro to Permaculture course offered by Oregon State University as an online course. People from all over the world can participate. MOOC stands for Massive Open Online Courses. They are free and cover a variety of topics. To sign up for the Free introduction to Permaculture course use this link http://open.oregonstate.edu/courses/permaculture/. It is best to register now - the course will begin in May 2016.
All are encouraged to take advantage. There are no tests and one can just watch the videos without doing the exercises. This will give a good overview what all is possible and either provide hope that our planet has a bright future or at least help to understand the "crazy" neighbor better who composts, water harvests and keeps talking about that cool design system called Permaculture.
Or, one can dive in deeply, do all the exercises, follow all the links given throughout the course and gain a whole lot of knowledge during the month of May 2016.
Now is a good time to register and then, to tell all friends and neighbors to do the same.
