I am interested in getting an in-depth hands on understanding of permacultureearthworks from experienced permaculture educators or designers. Sure, I've done them on my property and have learned a lot, but what I am looking for is getting a high degree of experience with the earthworks so that I can take this onto clients properties with confidence. Google only yields Geoff's class coming up this summer down south but am preferring something state side. Anyone have suggestions or know of upcoming workshops or permaculture designers (aside from Brad Lancaster) specializing in earthworks? Or places to go to gain earthworks experience?
Those of you installing earthworks on clients' sites - how did you gain your experience to do so (aside from reading about it in a book and just trying it)?

Already made reservations, 6 hrs drive (for me) I feel is totally worth it. Btw, nearby ithaca, ny, is serviced by amtrak, greyhound, and megabus.
Could anyone chime in, as to where it would be appropriate to post a ride share forum for this event? I couldn't find one on fingerlakespermaculture.org

I decided to check out this workshop as well, it'll be my first permaculture related course/workshop/anything.
Even with the added cost of the car rental and hotel I feel its worth it. The weekend timeline fits my work schedule well and the material covered looks like a great place to start learning.
I'll be driving through Ithaca very late Friday but will be staying west of the farm in the Burdett/Watkins Glen area during the course.
