I go by the name Satyr, for weird and nerdy reasons– But that’s another story– and I am currently in Seattle. I’ll be moving next month to Billings MT for education and work, but will someday be moving to Volcan, Panama.
Some friends want me to move with them, and have hopes of me running a farm, and tending animals for them, as I develop a sort of homestead or commune on the land. I have no experience, so I’m seeking education in Permaculture— Panama, it seems, will almost instantly grant long-term visas to anyone with a degree or intensive experience in farming (or anything farming like).
It is my hope to create a small, sustainable place for myself and my friends to live, and quite possibly many others.October 5, 2013 at 8:59 pm #6889
I used to live in Billings. If your are near the cliffs, you have a longer growing season than up in the foothills. Beautiful place. Still miss it. What part are you heading to? I used to live in Blue Creek.October 6, 2013 at 12:28 am #6890
I actually live (will be, when I move back) on the South SideNovember 21, 2013 at 11:31 pm #9455
Welcome to the Online Permaculture course Vincent – 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!).
PLEASE SUPPORT THIS COURSE. We want to continue giving away content free, but we do need your support! While the online course continues to be 100% free, we have launched 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. You get to do the fantastic design project and you get the certification, while we get funds to continue building out the course and adding fantastic new content, available to the world completely free! You can learn more about the certification @ https://regenerative.com/certification
If you think this knowledge is worth sharing with the world, please do share this website on Facebook, Twitter and e-mail with your friends — and do consider sigining up for the certification. We greatly appreciate your support!
Be sure to visit the other forums (https://www.permaculturedesigntraining.com/forums) as they contain some truly fantastic information from many of your other classmates. Again, welcome on-board!!

I’ve made it to the third section “Pants, Climate & Soil”, I like that I can now hear the student questions that are paired with the speaker’s answers, and see the things on the boards that they are drawing or referring to. I actually am signed up for the certificate course I am really excited to get that taken care of…
I am worried about the design project, but I’ll get there when the videos are done, and surely by that point, I’ll know more of what I need to know in order to make an awesome design.
Being in Montana, I’m dealing with winter and snow now… Was -2 today, so I can’t put into practice much until I get some funds and can set up a green house. However, I have a friend who raises sheep and owns a cow, and will be able to get plenty of compost for spring. I’m planning to set up a garden and use what I learn.November 22, 2013 at 9:27 am #10642
Don’t worry about the design project; it’s pretty straight-forward, just pay good attention to the instructions we provide you and make sure each bullet point requirement is met in your project explanation! It’s not complicated as long as directions are followed.November 22, 2013 at 11:39 am #10688
I’m excited to complete the certification
