Lindu Pindu MOAR! There's a free online permie class here, I have taken notes, with lots of pics: HS 432 Permaculture Course Notes Part I Lec 1-20


message 2: by Heather (new)

Heather Awesome! Thanks for the link to this course. I've been looking for something exactly like this.


message 3: by Lindu (new)

Lindu Pindu You're welcome Heather! There are other completely free online courses popping up all over the place, but this one is still my go-to reference for beginners. Good luck with your permie plans :)


message 4: by Lindu (new)

Lindu Pindu By the way, we're starting urban gardens based on permaculture principles in Bucharest, Romania and anyone who wants to join in on the fun can contact me :)

Laura Gessert Hey Lindu
Got room for people form America!
