My name is Polina. I have obtained my Bachelor’s Degree in Ecology, Environmental protection and Sustainable Development some month ago. I am going to further my education and benefit environment and society with my contribution. I am in search of the specific direction to follow in my future studies and professional development.
After spending some time in the countryside and eating the food, which was grown up by myself, I can
t afford myself to buy any vegetables and fruits form the supermarkets. The reason is that I dont trust the way the last were grown – the products don
t have the bright fresh taste and smell like the ones from my garden bed have, they just dont seem to be full of life energy, which is so important for us to get from food.
The course is the great chance for me to get in touch with the principles of permaculture. I hope to meet new people, who are concerned with the same problems that I am. Moreover, as far as I know the idea of the farmer Fukuoka is that natural farming is not only the way to grow healthy food, but also to maintain harmony in the world. I hope the course will unite people to build the world of wisdom and harmony.September 1, 2013 at 9:50 pm #6516
It’s a totally different experience to eat food from one’s own garden, isn’t it? And seems so weird to buy food in boxes or cans… I can never go back after eating real food!

Nice to meet you, Jonathan!
Yes, it is totally different! But what shall we do, when we are back to the big bustling city, where there is no garden with the food grown by ourselves? .. I hope the course will give the answer and inspiration to make a changeSeptember 2, 2013 at 12:06 pm #6523
There are lots of people trying out versions of balcony permaculture. My wife did EM Bokashi composting and grew veggies on her balcony in Tokyo, and we may end up doing that again in the future. If we do, I will definitely do an aquaponics system.November 1, 2013 at 1:52 am #7580
Welcome to the Online Permaculture course Polina – we’re thrilled to have you join us!
I want to check in to see how you’re progressing with the course and to inquire if you’re intending to pursue certification with us? Have you seen the other forums here? With tens of thousands of people now enrolled in the course, the forums are rapidly becoming a fantastic resource to ask questions and to meet other people studying permaculture (many likely in YOUR area!).
CERTIFICATION LAUNCH DISCOUNT: While the online course continues to be 100% free, we are about to launch our online certification track which builds on the existing content, adding a design project + an examination and leading to the internationally-standard Permaculture Design Certification. I am not sure if you saw our e-mails, but if you order the certification by end of day tomorrow (Friday), it’s just $249 (regular rate will be $389). You can sign up for certification @ https://regenerative.com/certification
As a sidenote, we’re about to film a bunch of new content, this time specifically for-video (rather than being film of in-person course). That content will get launched over the next few weeks.
Would love to hear if you have any feedback about the course and whether you’re planning on signing up for certification with us! Cheers and again, welcome on-board!November 19, 2013 at 2:43 pm #8628
