Hi there So basically I'vebeen bouncing around the world with work trades and I'm trying to give myself a backbone and springboard for my passion. Social permaculture has really driven a stake into me and I really want to pursue this line of learning and then work. The long and short of it is that I just don't have extensive finances for expensive courses all over the world, but I got two good hands and strong work ethic (my name is Emily which literally means hardworking). I do my PDC in end of Feb/beginning of March. Following this, I'm looking to work beside people so I can complete my Diploma. I can't afford to have a tutor so I'm looking to be able to intern, learn from someone on the job and really work hard to create projects and get this under my belt. Please can anyone give me advice, The only way I can get the money to do the PDC and diploma is to borrow it from sources who are 1. Sceptical of all this *sigh*, and 2. Who need a solid 'business plan' of what I intend to do with the money. I'm only looking to cover my expense for the PDC and the diploma but...you gotta do what you gotta do.
