Why not ask the Activist for this list if they have created one; maybe it
is online at their site.

Be sure to search the archives for this list for that information. Use the
Google site: command in the search box - you might be surprised at the
results.

Here are suggested search strings appended to the basic command (this goes
in the Google search box and not in the URL dialog box):

site: lists.ibiblio.org/pipermail/permaculture pdc
site: lists.ibiblio.org/pipermail/permaculture pdc course
site: lists.ibiblio.org/pipermail/permaculture pdc instructor
site: lists.ibiblio.org/pipermail/permaculture permaculture course
site: lists.ibiblio.org/pipermail/permaculture permaculture instructor
site: lists.ibiblio.org/pipermail/permaculture permaculture pdc
site: lists.ibiblio.org/pipermail/permaculture permaculture pdc instructor
