Post by: paul wheaton on February 10, 2017, 04:41:36 PM
Sunday, May 28th through Saturday June 10th, 2017 near Missoula, Montana

This course is being led by Tim Barker, Geoff Lawton's former land manager.

Tim is also the author of the rocket powered oven book:

This course will have a strong emphasis on homesteading, and a very strong emphasis on design.  We estimate that the student will spend about four times more time drawing designs than in other PDCs. There will also be a bit of holistic management thrown in:

This course will happen at my place, "wheaton labs" in montana.  I will be co-teaching during the whole course.   I am the producer, narrator and sometimes appear in dvd sets (Better Wood Heat, Wood Burning Stoves 2.0, and World Domination Gardening).  I'm also the co-creator of the permaculture playing cards:
