The discussion about the Permaculture Designer Certification course and price 
is interesting. Three years ago in Houston, Texas, USA, we started a "working 
man's" Certification course. We give it in 4 sections during one calendar 
year and the total cost is around $500. There are no lodging costs and 4 meal 
costs. We generally have classes 2 Wednesdays a month in an urban class room 
setting. We graduate about a dozen students a year who then work with us on 
Quarterly meetings and we will begin graduate workshops in a few months. We 
intentionally keep the prices down, so that any one of any means can take classes in 
any order. It has been very successful. For a full class schedule and 
description, check www.urbanharvest.org and go to the Permaculture section. The Austin 
group has just started successive weekend classes, also to address this urban 
need for people who work and cannot take time off for classes.
