This camp is designed for farmers ages 7-11 who have been to Roots camp.

My name is Cecile I am a 30 year old yoga teacher.
I have complete a 72hr design course in permaculture last year.
As I be visiting the US this summer I am looking for places to work and learn.
I was wandering if I could come and help for the Shoot Camp 2-6th of August as I am planning to come to Spokane on those days...
I teach Kids yoga, as well, or can help in the farm...
Let me know if you are interested or know permaculture places where I could volunteer...
Thanks in advance,
