THE PLAN FOR FALL 2018 APSO COURSE LAUNCH
Welcome APSO Teacher Affiliates!!
This course would not be what it is without your participation and support!! I could not do it alone - we need a spectrum of perspectives, methods, techniques, philosophies, and more to bridge the gap between where we are and where we need to be. With your help, we will make it happen!!
THANK YOU SO MUCH!!
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 long 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! From that point on, it’s all downhill!!

TEACHER Example 1:
Title: Incredible Advanced Permaculture!!
I usually don’t write about permaculture design programs, but I wanted to take a moment to highlight the amazing work of ThePermacultureStudent.com aka Matt Powers: he has gathered an incredible group of teachers - over 70 from around the world - and using the first peer-reviewed permaculture curriculum, that he wrote, he’s now launching, The Advanced Permaculture Student Online, the most ambitious and in-depth permaculture course ever conceived, and you don’t want to miss it. It’s a project-based advanced permaculture design certification course, the first of its kind, and it’s lifetime access!
It’s a BIG story, our regenerative world and our role in it, so a spectrum of voices are needed to tell it - I am honored to be included as part of the teaching staff. If you’re still on the fence at this point, feel free to download the textbook I mentioned earlier for FREE HERE [LINK TO EBOOK] - see for yourself why folks are saying it’s the best permaculture textbook available.

TEACHER Example 2:
Title: Beyond a PDC?
Advanced Permaculture is here, and it leads directly to career paths in the regenerative economy, but where can you learn about Advanced Permaculture and from who? There are so many career paths since every role in our current economy has a regenerative twin just waiting to be inspired into existence - how can 1 instructor be an expert in it all?
What about over 70 teachers in a globally peer-reviewed, student-centered, project-based 6 month program? What if it was lifetime access with a support group discussion-based community format?
What if I told you it was HERE now? The Advanced Permaculture Student Online is EXACTLY as described above and it’s AMAZING. How do I know? I’m one of the teachers in the course!!!

TEACHER Example 3:
Title: Peer-Reviewed Permaculture?
There’s only 1 peer-reviewed global, all-climate, full-spectrum permaculture textbook currently available and it expands what has been accepted permaculture to new areas like ocean restoration, current mycology, current soil science, renewable energy, permatecture, social permaculture, regenerative entrepreneurship, holistic management, the regrarians platform, and more - do you want a free copy?
Reviewed by a broad range of experts from Masanobu Fukuoka’s editor and student, Larry Korn, to Urban Market Gardener, Curtis Stone, from soil expert Dr. Elaine Ingham to health expert Dr. Jeanne Wallace, from ecological landscaping business leaders like Erik Ohlsen to seaweed farming with Antoinette and Dan Marquez - this book has EVERYTHING. It finally organizes Permaculture into an academic format that connects to the greater world outside the homestead and garden.

TEACHER Example 4:
Title: Professional Permaculture?
Did you know there’s such a thing? There are people making money with permaculture outside the PDC teacher and consulting circuit - they are almost all finding the permacultural twins of roles found already in the degenerative economy though some are creating new roles in the emerging regenerative economy. You may even have heard of these new developments: goat herds are replacing chemicals and machines to manage landscapes regeneratively, rooftop farms are appearing in cities, large-scale thermophilic composting is becoming common in municipalities everywhere, and regenerative large-landscape restoration is becoming profitable too - just to name a few. As the foundation of our economies and cultures, the food, fiber, fuel, energy, and medicine production shifts to regenerative sources, the value added products and services will align with that base, and socioeconomic trophic cascades will occur as bioregions find equilibrium and abundance, but it starts with first spread the new regenerative career paths.
I am ecstatic to be part of The Advanced Permaculture Student Online as one of the over 70 experts from around the world to speak on advanced regenerative solutions. This course changes lives and is considered “the best permaculture course” many have ever taken - the reviews are incredible:

Generic Introductory Email Examples:
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.

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.

Title: His Students had only 3 Choices: Debt, the Military, or Trouble
Have you heard of Matt Powers, the high school teacher turned permaculture author and educator? He was teaching in one of the poorest counties in California and the 6th most violent county in America.

If we want a regenerative economy and a livable future, we need the career paths to make it possible. Teaming up with Matt Powers and the advanced team, we are making this possible! We can take back the momentum and turn things towards connecting college students and adults to real solutions and real career paths that honor them, the earth, and their legacy.
Whether you are interested in mycology, soil science, landscaping, the fibershed economy, holistic management, seaweed farming, hemp farming, keyline design, biochar, Korean natural farming, scaling up your homestead, or just curious as to what a hopeful, inspiring, and abundant future can look like and how you can participate in it: this course is for you!
