I saw there is a college level program that you offer. Would this in any way be recognized by the Veterans Affairs Education program?
I am a Veteran and for education I depend on VA approved programs. I lived in the North Maine Woods with a Bushcraft and primitive skills school for 90 days which had no electricity and focuses on primitive life skills. The owner stated that our class was the first class of Veterans since obtaining approval to offer programs for Veterans benefits. He also stated it was his largest class resulting in the largest gross income in the history of his school.
I have yet to find a VA approved Permaculture institute. To be approved by the VA an institution needs to only provide cirriculum, scheduling, student handbook, a degree or certificate at completion, practicum or internship, and policies for student evaluation.

I am Jonesing bad to get into a Permaculture program. If your Institute is not VA approved there is nothing to lose in applying to the Education board and everything to gain! Guaranteed money is always great for any business, plus you could potentially give drive and direction to very able individuals with a ton of motivation but lacking the support in this field!
