I have read the course protocol and other information sent to registrants and understand and accept the conditions of the course.   Signed ___________________________________ Date _______________ [Sign or initial also in 2 places below]   Note: At least $600 must be received before the course begins. Total course fee is $1,000 if paid in advance, $1,100 if paid in two installments. The second payment of $500 is will enable you to submit information about your design project and receive guidance, critiques and class discussion regarding your project. We do not wish to keep track of more than two installments. Please, save up the second $500 and send it all at once. Monitor fees are due in full on registration. Partial scholarship students should pay the full amount before the class begins.   For Course Students ON THE BACK OF THIS SHEET; Please TYPE or email a statement outlining, briefly, your background, why you wish to attend the course, how you intend to use permaculture design after the course, where you live, your living situation and any other information about yourself you wish to share. Please use no more than 500 words. You will be required to post this information to all your classmates once the course begins. You may add to this statement at any time. Head it: PERSONAL INFORMATION, Addendum, (YOUR NAME). [If you are applying for a scholarship, you may use the space for that application. Type "Scholarship Application" at the top so that we are sure to give it early attention. Scholarship applications are limited to one page (surface) of regular office paper (8-1/2 x 11 in the US), but never more than 500 words on paper or by email. Request special instructions.]   ON A SECOND SHEET. Please TYPE a description of your skills, resources and experiences that make you a resource to the rest of us. This information is very important. In case of overenrollment, we will use it to select a balanced course with people from as many backgrounds as possible. The other students and Elfin Permaculture will use this information to determine where you can be a resource for others. If you have 7 PhD degrees in ecology and soil science, that's nice. If you have raised three children in a teepee living off the land, that's great. All life experience is important. If you are modest, you cheat other students of knowing how you are a resource. We use a one-room schoolhouse model in this course and students must be resources for one another. In an email classroom, we cannot conveniently draw information readily from you. Use two sides of a regular sheet of paper (not legal--we'll cut off the bottom to fit our files) or 1,000 words by email. You will be required to post this information to all your classmates once the course begins. You may add to this statement at any time. Head it: PERSONAL INFORMATION, Addendum, (YOUR NAME).   Presentation Proposal Everyone in the course will give one personal presentation at some time during the course. You may propose your presentation now. If it fits the course outline, we may schedule your presentation in the relevant section of the course. Anyone may schedule a presentation on any topic s/he wishes to share with the class, regardless of whether it fits the course schedule. If you do not propose a presentation topic at this time, we will assign one. We really need as many people as possible to schedule early, as we may have as many as 20 permaculture designs to evaluate toward the end of the course. I would like to present the following: (TYPE NO MORE THAN ONE PAGE (500 WORDS)....   Study Group Everyone in the course will be assigned a study group. If people are geographically close, we will try to assign them to the same group so that they may meet, visit one another's design sites and/or even share a design project (at a tuition discount.) If you have preferences for people to be in your study group, please let us know. In case of light enrollment, the entire class serves as one study group.   For Monitors & Students Alike I understand that all on line materials and most reading materials I receive in connection with this course are copyrighted.

This permission is conditional upon standard royalties to be paid to me for any direct sales of my contributions.     ___________________________________________________________ (Signature) [signature required for registration]   Please mail the signed portions of this registration with your payment.       Electronic Deposits There is a service charge of $25 or whatever the bank charges (which ever is higher). The bank fee for this has gone up faster than we can keep track of it. If you want us to contact the bank and verify the deposit, e.g. to expedite a book shipment, double the service charge. Sometimes the bank mails us a notification of electronic deposits, sometimes we have to wait to see it on our monthly statement. Generally, electronic transfers represent an expensive way to expedite payment with no guarantee that the effect will not be actually slower than if you sent some physical instrument of payment to us.
