Hello, 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, Love Cecile firstname.lastname@example.org
