“Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”

It took me some time to decide what course to develop for my current PID Program, but I finally got the necessary inspiration (and empowerment) from a free eBook one of my Permaculture former classmates shared with me this past week.
My choices were:
What this means is that from now on my posts here may become more “Permaculture-Food Security-Transition” based but may also be scarcer as I need to focus on this project. It is a great way to link together my current “Transition” training, my required Permaculture Portfolio that I need to start working on for my Permaculture Diploma (specializing in Education and Social/Community service), my future “Train the trainer” as Permaculture instructor that I am planning for next March 2014 and my PIDP graduation…at the same time, if this is successful and can be implemented, many communities may benefit as the course requires that graduates implement some of the projects in their lives, neighbourhoods, organizations or communities…yeah!
“The greatest change we need to make is from consumption to production, even if on a small scale, in our own gardens. If only 10% of us do this, there is enough for everyone. Hence the futility of revolutionaries who have no gardens, who depend on the very system they attack, and who produce words and bullets, not food and shelter.”
~ Bill Mollison
