Jack Spirko of The Survival Podcast just made this video with powerpoint that I found to be fantastic. He is enthusiastic, experienced and this video is full of details that have really helped tie some things together for me. Strengthening the web!
Hope you find it as interesting as I have.

Many of us are struggling. Many of us have no money to spend even on used books or gas to get to the library. On the other hand, most of us, at least in the developed world, have internet of some kind. The resources available to anyone with the curiosity and guts to look for answers will find them.
Learning to self-educate with the ability to evaluate what you expose yourself to is a worthy challenge for any adult. Any person really. Children should be given more time for self guided education. You want them to find a career doing something they love? Let them guide at least half of what they learn and that is what they will do. To me that fits perfectly with permaculture. I encourage anyone who reads these words to search and read and question. Learn the difference between an observable fact and a concept.
Scribd. is a great resource with many books, articles, papers, thesis and transcripts which can all be read online for free. There are Android and iPhone apps which make them much more convenient to read.

We finally have our copy of this and I am pretty excited. There is a ton of information online now, wonderful resources that can teach you everything you need to know but there is something about learning from Bill that can’t be missed. Additionally, there are a lot of great videos available featuring Bill in locations all over the world and I recommend all of them.
With all these resources and some hands on experience through a PDC and/or internship then perhaps some WWOOFing, we will be ready to design and build our farm anywhere in the world. The feeling of taking your destiny in your own hands and at the same time living how you really want to live, happy and fulfilled, is indescribable.

When I began looking for alternative farming techniques and discovered Permaculture, this site was one of the first I found. I spent a few days reading all the articles, becoming more excited and inspired than I thought was possible a week before. That may not sound like much but it was. It was life changing.
Thank you Angelo for sharing your journey and I look forward to joining the global permaculture community in helping the world back into abundance.
