The land has not yet closed. It's due to close on May 31. And yet we are excited to start planning workshops as we build. To that end, we have some questions about interest levels.

poop management - setting up poop systems that are measurably superior to sewer and septic.

IF you would be able to:
  • travel to the site in Montana
  • have the funds to pay a workshop fee
  • be able to take time off work

  • we want to hear from you in this thread.

    So, IF you fit the three criteria above, please reply and include:
    (a) how many podcasts you've listened to
    (b) whether you would be willing to camp in a tent
    (c) how many days works for you - 1-2 days, 2-3 days or more.

    Workshop space will be limited, so those responding here will be given priority registration once we actually close and have more details nailed down.

    I'd be interested, depending on the price, and particularly if, 1) if the end of the workshop coincided with the beginning of the RMH workshop or the Wofati workshop or the Pond-Building workshop so that I could leverage my time in Montana to attend multiple learning sessions; and 2) if we can cover the current EPA guidelines so we can potentially get some new alternatives into some planning commission's hands.

    (a) I've heard all the podcasts, (except three I haven't gotten round to buying), some multiple times. (Yeah, I see the irony that two are Art Ludwig's interview on this very subject.)
    (b) A tent is fine, though I like camping in my hammock better.
    (c) I have 3 weeks vacation saved for Permaculture Ed this year. Flying gives me an extra 4 days on the land, but I can't bring tools and transit and such. Say two weeks for all that can be accomplished.

    Paul was checking in with someone who knows more in this space though he hasn't heard back yet. There are others we can check with, too--we'll see what we can do.
