We have a wonderful local permaculture guild (the SC Upstate Permaculture Society: https://www.facebook.com/groups/445484185526915/). Some of our members are looking to do the free Regenerative Leadership Institute 72 hour permaculture design course by meeting locally for group learning.

I've heard of other people meeting and doing the hands-on parts at each other's property while discussing the lessons. Can anyone weigh in on their experiences with this or point me to some sort of template? How often should we meet? What would our group facilitator need to do to moderate each gathering's lesson? Is there a minimum or maximum number of students recommended for something like this? I suppose if we were too big we could break into smaller groups.

I'd love to hear any experiences with this (especially type 1 errors we can avoid).
