Im doing this for my interns. Theres been too many PDC lately anyhow, so im just crowding a market by trying to get people to come. So I don't care if you come, cause the traffics a b*tch and camping is limited. Besides, this "teacher" is grumpy, graying and gimped, a PTSD hypervigilant head traumatized veteran, post punk apocalypse smile scared survivor of a slow emergency, and Im not offering a PDC for cloying peace-nics who dont wake up til 10am, complain about meat, or pray over their pipefulls of stupid. And no annoying singsong singalongs from any 'native tradition'. Ive got a direct line to the source of Indian Fireworks, so im not impressed by that made for the TV Special powow song.

Ahem.  We are restoring, by hand, an acre of land that hundreds of  yards of clay landed on in a mudsilde, building forest gardens from a nothing of yech; propagating wild plants for companions to our gardens; we have chicken paddocks, and are aiming at bought food being 50% of their diet by August and not increasing above that again, hopefully dropping to 20% by next summer. We have annual and perrenial polycultures, some well developed, some new, a small aquaculture project (@800 gallons)  and a bunch of great guests and a plan for real good fun. It all builds up to the Hogs Head & Art Barn, a found & environmental art funday with lots of subtle subversion of the dominant paradigms, music, barbq and a Coyote Howl In from the hot tubs if were lucky...

Im doing this for my interns:

A very small number of seats are open for other presenting guests, and visitor guests are encouraged to chime in about skillshare interests. Drop a line if you are interested in this punkish woods weirdo's take on permaculture.  Sign up for the whole thing or just weekends. Hell, we might even run a chainsaw through a few trees and shoot some guns, just to be sure this is a unique time for all.

what Deston failed to mention are the hogs he keeps.  their feed bill decreases substantially when visitors drop by, if you take my meaning.  if you complain about meat, you'll be the meat.

slightly more seriously: good site, good and knowledgeable folks, should be a good time.  or seven good times.  or who knows how many good times if you meet a special someone at Abundance...
I found a beautiful pie. And a tiny ad:
