THE PLAN FOR FALL 2018 APSO COURSE LAUNCH

Welcome APSO Affiliates!!

It is an honor to host this program which is really all about you and your communities because this course is about empowering each other in regenerative ways: it’s a gift that will continue to keep on giving for generations without end if we can get it widely adopted fast enough. That is why your help is so very important and critical!

Every Fall & Spring we are going to be re-launching APSO and enrolling a new class of students, so I want our relationship to be a valuable and lasting one! We’ve already had over 400 people attend the first season of this course, we are excited to 10X that this time with your participation! It is my hope that we teach 50,000 people in the next two years as an Affiliate Team. Realistically, we need to reach millions within the next five years - we don’t have much time and there’s no other resource or program like APSO for preparing and connecting people from all walks of life, contexts, and climates with the regenerative economy. 

I’m also adding more and more to the course: I’ll be doubling the amount of content in the course in the next year as I focus on getting hands-on how-to’s with experts for every niche I can possibly find. I want to showcase all the major regenerative mirrors to the careers we have currently as well as historical examples from around the world. I’ll be filming the kelp forests underwater off the US West Coast. I’ll be filming what remains of Ragged Chutes, the trompe air power plant, with the current engineer running the hydroelectric station there. We’ll be filming in Hawaii with Eddy Garcia at the Molokai ancient aquaculture fish ponds and more!

I’ll be sending out emails with updates, new free stuff to share with people to get them excited, and weekly content to share. Thank you so much for being part of our team! Scroll on down and check out your resources - read through the email samples and see what feels right to you: you can always edit it! Start working on promoting the course: make a schedule, make a plan, and stick to it! Your positivity, sharing of critical facts and information, and samples of the course will guide you to connect with those who need this course most! You will find that person and make your first sale! From that point on, it’s all downhill!!!

Title: How Will We Regenerate Our World?

There are many people out there who are uncertain, scared, in denial, drained of hope, and running away from reality. Our world needs help - it needs regenerating. It’s up to us - our governments are not going to move fast enough or force us to change: we have to make the hard choices now to make tomorrow livable…. BUT it’s really not all that dark and arduous a journey as we’d think: the path to an abundant future is thick with purpose, meaning, and holistic benefit. We can heal the earth and make a good living at the same time - there are folks doing it right now: I know some of them. They love their lives and love what they do for a living, and they are a growing crowd of happy people doing good things, and we want everyone to have a chance to live fulfilling and positive lives. That’s why we’re teaming up with The Advanced Permaculture Student Online and over 70 teachers from around world and host, Matt Powers, to connect you with career paths that help you help yourself, your neighbors, the environment, and the future.

“It is my opinion that it is the best permaculture course in the world” -James Webb

Matt Powers - you are the true reflection of what permaculture means with caring for people not just the paperwork. This is my destiny and I knew as soon as I signed up that this was the course, that it would change my life.” - Beth Healey

“This course is World Class! I love the info. I own a company and work 70 hours a week. This is the best course I have ever taken on this subject. Matt Powers ROCKS!!!” -Mike Garcia

“The PDC from a few years ago truly changed my way of looking at everything. Your course has up-scaled the learning to reach deeper into the way I view the interior and exterior worlds…micro to macro.” -Jennifer Brennan

“I appreciate your tremendous, inspiring work and this exciting learning experience so much.” - Yoko Fujimoto

This course is fantastic Matt! Your energy amps up the lessons and I love the audiobook format. I'm honored to be a part of this. Thank you brother." -Nik Cudnik 

"You know how you didn't know you were looking for something until you found it? That's how I feel about this course!" -Deidra Jowers

"I feel as if I was just offered a choice between taking the red pill or the blue pill. Mind=blown." -Ryan Markley

"Matt, you make this so fun. Love your laugh at the start. Oh my gosh I love this course because of you. Rejoice!!" -Aztrel 

"I got my B.S. in Biology in 1995. I have been looking for a way to go to grad school ever since. This course and your programs are so much more efficient at delivering information... Not to mention the real world experience of your guest teachers and students. I cannot think of a better way to continue my education than what you are offering and this community. Thank you to everyone." - RJ Cox

"I really thought I knew something about nature. Just in the last two weeks I learned nature is a new science with a lot of niches to fill in. So many gaps in education. We should be teaching this to our children. Imagine the potencial of human race's evolution if we all start with this kind of basic understanding of nature early on in our education system. Geoff Lawton's PDC completely changed my understanding of nature, but this course is just taking it to a whole new level. Future now looks more feasible. We have to set a good example so we can properly inoculate people around us. We are really living in a nature illiterate society, our biggest challenge is to fully understand the impact of community building in nature and society. Thank you Matt for all your effort to put all this information together, it is really powerful and empowering." - Thiago 

"Thx Matt Powers I’ve been super impressed with the mass amount of information provided thus far and the support from you and the class mates has been world class." -Anthony Harris

"I’m learning so much, but the part I constantly talk about to others is the soil food web, the biology in our soil. Everything else is wonderful too and much of it new info for me, but the biology is like the magic key that I was missing from all these half-knows. The startling realization of all of it is like if I stuck my head in water and realized I could breath there all this time; why did I not notice it before, but now that I do it’s amazing. I’m excited that this course gives me a lot of hope" - Katherine Barton

"I’d have to say that my understanding of the earth and permaculture in general has expanded to universal portions. As well as my beliefs in my ability to make a positive change." -David Medearis 

"I have learned tons of new things... Thank you Matt for being so generous and bringing so many experts into your course. You ALL open millions of opportunities :-)" -Trinidad Arribas

"This course has been the most valuable course I've ever taken, and I cant wait to go back through it all a second and third time. This is a true gift to the world Mr. Powers. Thank you!" -Mark

"I have learned so much so far and my perception of permaculture has changed beyond expectations. In the past, many of my ideas stayed ideas and I am acting instead of dreaming now. I meet up with people and reach out more to others to share knowledge, plants and seeds. I have started to sprout indoors and I am yielding an abundance. I am brewing kombucha where I have created a system of abundant flow. I'm finding ways to create an abundant amount of Oman Desert sweet potato slips indoors that I plan to give away. I'm learning to cool my house more effectively similarly to what Matt just spoke about. I am just creating more in general. I'm teaching, trading, learning and observing. I have brought a lot back to zone 0 to refocus thought and energy. Everything I do now requires much more critical thinking and planning and it has changed everything for me. My gratitude goes out to everyone in this course because I gain awesome insight and knowledge from everyone's comments!!!" -Matthew Wesner

"I've always understood intuitively that everything is connected, but the course has clearly illustrated in tangible ways how this is true. I've taken Elaine Ingham's Soil Food Web course and had the pleasure of hearing Darren Doherty speak in Santa Barbara and read P.A. Yeoman's Water for Every Farm, but this is the first time I have seen all of it presented as an integrated coherent whole. It's almost like studying the respiratory system, the circulatory system and the digestive system - and then experiencing them as a living thriving whole body. It's systems within systems. Very cool!" -James B.

"There is so much in this course! I love the sharing and collaborative way people want to work. I love the innovative ideas and projects going on. I love the positivity. I love how Matt is so supportive and responsive. I tell everyone about Permaculture and this course! I think Permaculture is the umbrella that I've been looking for...it connects everything that I've intuitively felt at a deep level." - Monique Challis

"Thanks for taking a bold leap and including these sometimes difficult to talk about topics in a permaculture course. You're the man Matt! -David V.
