Last December our book Growing FREE (Financially Resilient & Economically Empowered) Building the Life of Your Dreams Without Losing Your Soul or Destroying the Planet was reviewed and promoted here in the Permies forums. Rachel reviewed our book and gave it 8 out of ten acorns saying it was the missing tome in her permaculture library.

Now I'm back to let you know about a 4 week online course I'll be offering in May based on one of the central teachings of our book – how to create your personal permaculture economy.

My co-authors and I spent the last 15 to 20 years piecing together all that permaculture has to teach us about achieving financial resilience on our climate challenged planet. In the process of applying all that knowledge we each ended up giving our personal economies a complete makeover – by that I mean we found ourselves shifting how we earn, spend, invest, and manage the money, resources, and other non-monetary forms of wealth in our lives.

Over the years our conventional personal economies transformed from fragile, soul-crushing systems that relied on and upheld the destructive corporate economy we each abhor into a resilient, life-affirming engine that grows wealth naturally for us and our communities over time. This metamorphosis has become the cornerstone of each of our FREE lives.

And I want to teach you how to do this too so you can reclaim your life from capitalism and create your own climate resilient and joy-filled personal economy based on the nature inspired wisdom of permaculture.

Soooo... I'll be hosting the 4 week Personal Economy Makeover course  on Wednesday, May 1, 8, 15, 22 from 7 to 8:30 pm ET/UTC - 4 online via Zoom. (My lead co-author Mike Hoag will be joining us for the May 15th session.)

NOTE: While the general strategies and principles discussed in this course will be applicable no matter where you live, most  of the specific examples shared will likely be specific to the United States.

During this 4 week course you'll learn how to:

*build wealth in ways that contribute to regeneration, instead of further extraction, destruction, and harm

*unleash your resourcefulness and unlimited human potential to solve your problems instead of relying solely on money

*save money thru creative, resourceful, and alternative ways to meet your needs and lead your life

*adopt a more expansive view of wealth, assets, investing, and living

*grow your financial resilience through holistic, regenerative, and strategic investments that keep the value of your expenditures on your own personal holistic balance sheet

Your live participation is encouraged, but sessions will be recorded and available for viewing through the end of June. Early bird registration price is $80 through March 31. After that the price increases to $100.

Grab your spot here so you too can transform your personal economy into a resilient, life-enhancing system that benefits people & planet – and you!
