Hey Edward,

New to the forum here and orienting myself to the rich content available, it's awesome!

I'm a student at NC State enrolled in our university Permaculture class and I could not be more enthralled. I am so captivated by the philosophy and applicability of permaculture that I am doing my best to integrate it into my daily life.

Now, do you know Will Hooker? He's my professor at NCSU, and I feel like he'd know about these trips. We have a number of trips planned throughout the semester, many of which I plan to attend. Are these coinciding?!

Hi, Levon--

Just now seeing this. Sorry this is two months late! I do know of and admire Will Hooker....and I guess you have seen by now that these did not coincide. Hope you are having a great time in your class! -- Edward
