I'd highly recommend any of the courses at Inspiration Farm! I just added this thread to the PDC and workshops forums, too - albeit probably too late with the PDC starting this weekend already.

Brian, if you'd like, in the future, create your post/thread, then use the "report to moderators" button to ask to have this added to other forums. It's super easy for staff to add it for you.

Thanks for your Bump Jocelyn!
Although we are starting the course tomorrow the first four weekends are spaced out and they can be attended separately if people like. The full week log portion of the class doesn't start until July When Penny Livingston will be joining us.
We will also be doing an earthworks course in August. All the details are at. www.inspirationfarm.com

Thanks again for helping to get the word out! I hope you are doing well and hope to see you soon.
