The VBC has been described in so many ways. We like to think of it as "Villager Practice", but in real time. We learn
by doing, do by learning! Every project is a step forward to a better world. The idea is to utterly challenge the full
spectrum of unsustainable assumptions that we live within, such as that we have no power where we live, that all
we can do is work for others, and rarely work together with the people we live among. No, instead VBC begins with
people saying "We are powerful where we live, we can and will make a difference in our own lives!" Whether growing
local food systems, transforming streets, building community gathering places out of natural or recycled materials,
engaging youth, or building our local democracy, we are activating our people to get off the couch and find their own
voice and their own power, together!

Come join us - http://vbc.cityrepair.org/

Also please consider donating to our Indiegogo campaign so we can keep building community, building cob benches, structures and gardens while educating the people!

Hi Ben and welcome to Permies.

I note that you posted the above to multiple forums. I've added this post to those forums instead of having multiple copies out there.

Sounds like a great course!
