The feed back has been exceptional and we are sure perhaps a few hundred back yard nurseries will spring up because of it this year. This is yet another example of our real goals at PermaEthos, to empower as many people as possible to develop their own properties and business in consort with Permaculture ethics and design science.
Nick and I talked a lot about the production of this course and what we wanted it to do. The main goals were simple.
- No fluff, the real necessary information to set up a full on production system for plant propagation with all major techniques, rooting, misting, grafting, etc.
- For it to be understandable where anyone could take that information and get the ball rolling.
Those goals were met but we had one more goal. Under promise and over deliver. To that end on the weekend of Feb 21-22 Nick and I will host two conference calls of two hours each. The calls will run from 11AM – 1PM central standard time.
Call in info will be sent to all students a day in advance. Recordings of the call will then be added to the course for use by all students.
In addition Nick will be doing a walk though of my property with me, pruning some of my trees, collecting scion wood and some other cool stuff. All of this will be video’d and uploaded to the course site as well. This video will be largely unedited but it will be in full HD and be shot with professional gear. It will also address issues for trees 1-2 years old planted on a true permaculture site.
Again all of this is bonus material and will be provided freely to all students both current and future for Nick Plant Propagation course.
On the call we will focus on developing niche markets, marketing your business, dealing with any and all propagation issues and just basically answer any and all questions you guys have.
If you have been considering taking the course you still have plenty of time to get enrolled and take your first pass though the videos before the coming call. Students should begin to prepare now, write down questions as you plan your nursery, plan for your end goals, etc. Personally I feel for those that want to set up a business of this kind these two calls alone if applied will be worth the entire cost of the course.

As a final note we will also be using your feedback during this call to help us in developing the Advanced Plant Propagation Course which Nick will be developing in the future.
