Geoff Lawton Just Did Something Amazingly Cool — 28 Comments

  1. More and more I want to sign up for this course. I am going to Ben Falk’s course in August with the wife, so the idea of doing 2 PDCs is uhm….. yeah. Although I do know that Ben’s is much more… application oriented rather than strictly fundamentals.

  2. This is an outstanding bonus. I’m about halfway through the first batch of lessons and it is really good stuff. Jack, the discount was great. It made it possible for me. Thanks.

  3. This is even more tempting. I may email them to ask if we will be able to pay a bit extra to get a DVD copy of the Earthworks Course also. I doubt I will have time to view both before August, so I would like to look at the Earthworks course later.

    • No, I’m not going to bug them. I see the course is available for 6 mo anyway. As something extra, that’s more than enough!

  4. I know I saw that and about fell out of my chair!!! This is way cool.

  5. Jack this whole thing is awesome, one thing though, this is jsut not the right time for me financially to take part in the online PDC, I was hoping you were going to ask Geoff on the Monday show if there were going to be more of these and it never came up. Do you have any inkling whether there may be more of these in the future?
    Congrats to those of you who are getting to take part in it and Jack as always, thanks for everything that you do for us.

    • That’s a pretty important question I think.
      Everything sounds like the answer is this is the only one unless/until another one is created, rather than a regular occurring thing.

      • I think the current answer is they are not sure yet. My guess is they will run more of them, it does free Geoff from his maddening travel sched to a degree and lets him do more project based stuff when he does travel.

        • I am hoping that Geoff will (when this 1000 P.D.C. event has concluded) offer a pay as you go course. It’s not easy to part with $1k all at once, but $50-100/month is very doable.

  6. I had never heard of permaculture until I listened to TSP. I knew it was the right thing once I heard you and then saw Geoff’s video link from your site. I have a lot to learn but thanks to you, I am on my way now. I love it. Keep up the good work Jack. I can’t thank you enough.

  7. This is just an amazing deal. Thanks Geoff, and thanks Jack for the discount! All this content is worth way more than I paid for it.

  8. Thanks for negotiating the discount Jack. I’m really excited to get started on the course. The Earthworks Course is icing on the cake.

  9. Our area is supposed to desertify by 2030. We intended to move north, so that our children could avoid water shortages, and we could run an herb business without piping in a scarce resource at great expense. Geoff Lawton’s Earthworks Course may save us even more money by permitting us to stay in our area. No relocation costs will make our business much easier to start.

  10. I’ve been really happy with the course so far and I’m so thankful for your introducing me to permaculture. Thank you Jack.

  11. I was going to sit this round out given the number of iron in the fire I have going (full time work, full time school, among others), but this got me off the fence. I have a gap in classes in July and will be attacking this then.

  12. I signed up yesterday for the PDC and this cemented for me that I made the right decision.

  13. Jack, I really appreciate you sending this back to your audience so we benefit. This is an honor to be enrolled in this course. Ive already been through the intro a few times and I will say that the course has almost paid for itself already in information. Ive studied permaculture for over 5 years and even been in PDC’s. The big picture and encouragement that Geoff brings is amazing. Thanks again for sharing this with us, I hope to do the same for others.


  14. Does anyone know if there is a time limit to complete the online PDC Course? And if so what it is? I am totally swamped from now until June 15th because I’m taking a couple of graduate-level college courses right now, and along with my job, they will keep me overwhelmed until mid-June. But if I could start the PDC then, I would love to order this now…anyone know? Thanks! Bill

    • August 17th is what the sign up page says. I’m planning to keep up the best I can through June and make this course my [you know what] in July.

  15. BTW Jack, THANKS for negotiating the discount for us MSB members!!! Very cool and quite noble of you to negotiate that, in lieu of a commission or referral fee for yourself…which frankly I think you would deserve for helping to publicize this. Thanks again! Bill

  16. I’m still wondering what ‘PDC’ means? ‘permaculture doctrine course’?
    Sorry, new to it still.

    I just ordered the Geoff Lawton PDC and want to thank you for enlightening me on the subject. I know this is going to change my life and a career change . Thank you for all the work you do.

  18. Hey Jack,
    I signed up for Geoff’s PDC and am so excited.
    I signed up before I found your discount but told them and they refunded me and now I’ve signed up through the MSB. Cool, saved me $150 even if I do have to pay GST because I live down under.
    I am so inspired by the intro that I can’t wait for the rest, I couldn’t do his PDC because I’m a single parent and this is just perfect.
    Thanks for the discount, your awesome!
