Really good practical, economically sound, information on growing healthy food. The practices are explained well without overly detailing concepts.

I apreciate the work, but I don't know what to think of it.

As it is now, it tells what is going on in the videos. It is no different of what we would get just watching the class, but with less content.
I wonder what it is its purpose.

The advantage of the guide is that we can watch the figures in better resolution and we can use the search function in a pdf reader to find some key words. For example, I could go a search for 'spiders' if I don't remember what they are good for.

For its length, it is very close to being the Garden Master Course in written format, but in this case we wouldn't write "Helen discussed the importance of growing diverse plants in small gardens to reap multiple benefits". It would simply say "Growing diverse plants in small gardens produces multiple benefits. Plants such as chickweed (Stellaria) and plantain (Plantago) can be grown both for its beauty and they are a good food source at the same time".
In such case, this guide could be just an alternative to the recorded class, it would be a guide no more, but a text book on its own.

I admit that I was expecting a different study guide. Something with a very brief summary of the concepts so I can find them easily on the recorded class

Day Three Afternoon: Working with Deseases in the Farm/Garden System
[...]
(22' 10") Differentiating between pests and benefitial insects
(24' 20") Recognizing Different Types of Aphids and Leafhoppers
[...]



And then some exercises, proposed workouts, fact sheets.
For example, one sheet with all the Principles together.

1. Diversify the soil food web with ABOVE and BELOW-GROUND plant diversity.
2. Disturb the soil as little as possible; create year-round refuges.
3. Keep a growing root in the soil year-round.
4. Keep soil covered with as much diversity as possible.
5. ...


Then some questions, so we have to study them.

Q: What root weeds can be useful for principle 3 in a temperate climate?
A: I'd take a look at pfaf.org and filter for temperate climate and perennial, then pick a few plants with different root structure that apply as weeds, and write the answer.



This is what I imagined the guide could be.

Thanks for the feedback Abraham! I still need to update the timestamps in the vids with this new extension, each subheading is to be included in the streaming videos so you can go to the specific point she talks about each subject. Theres hundreds + of these so working on em, will update back here when its done.

Do we get to download the videos with this?
For some reason, I can download the pdf for the course, but when I go to where the videos are, I don't have the option to scroll down. It wants me to purchase..
