We have lots of wood to gather and move. We have an excavator and a dump truck in motion and several different soil types to work with. We have mountains of seeds. We have mulch. We have the opportunity to add artistic shapes.
We will be filming.
We will provide lunch and dinner.
Everybody will get a chance to drive the excavator (if it is running).
People coming from far away can set up a tent and stay a little before or after. (April in Montana can be cool and wet)
Limit of 24 people.
(note in relation to the gapper program: if you get set up, come out and do a good job - you can come back and you don't need to pay the gapper fee)
Please ask questions in this thread. When you are certain you will be coming then send an email to workshop at richsoil.com.
If the weather is good, we might be able to do an early evening tour of the lab - complete with the sun scoop berms (one for the lemon tree and one for the tipi), wofati and the pond there.
Sometime I won't be booked up when you post opportunities for awesome events. I'm hosting Owen Hablutzel here that weekend for a Holistic Management workshop.
If anyone can't make it to MT but is near Reno, NV April 26-27th check it out.
We still have some room! E-mail us if you want in!

Some of the filming might go into the mini-documentary or the main DVDs from the World Domination Gardening Kickstarter.
Edited to add: note that the world domination gardening Kickstarter thread linked above is 6 pages long at the time of this post.

If you arrive late, you might not be able to find us. We have already started hugels that are 12-feet tall, so we could be hiding behind them. Plus, we have hugelkultur beds both here at base camp and the lab, which is down the road a bit. So if we go to the lab right at 9:00, where there is no address and hundreds of acres without landmarks, you really wouldn't find us!

Yes, I feel exactly the same. I'd love to come, but there's no way I can get there from Georgia this weekend. Good luck guys and have lots of fun. Also, I probably will buy the DVDs when they become available.
