Hello All,

I am the Biology teacher and Head of the Science Department at the Stonehill International School in Bangalore, India. During the summer my wife and I work on our place in Southeast implementing Permaculture principles and building a home which will operate fossil fuel free.

At Stonehill I have been working with students to create a Permaculture demonstration site, as well as creating Science units that are based on Permaculture. Other teachers are beginning to take notice and I have been talking to them about integrating permaculture units into their curriculum. I also run a beekeeping project with students. There students designing investigations about mycoremediation of horse stable runoff, differences in biomass accumulation between a monoculture and a multi-story polyculture and more.

Stonehill is one of thousands of International Baccalaureate schools, and as such is part of a ready-made network of educators, conferences and workshops worldwide. Not to mention the thousands and thousands of other schools.

My issue is I'm an Ecology/wilderness guy, not a tech guy, and do not know how to build an appropriate website/forum. Is there a tech-savvy person or two who would feel moved to help with the site build?

Either send me a purple mooseage or email me at anthony dot cook at stonehill dot in.

Thanks for reading.
