Hey there. Has anyone heard of, or participated in courses from the CRMPI? This is their website if you don't know what it is (http://crmpi.org/) From what I've seen/read about it, it's basically an established food forest where people go to take hands on permaculture courses and learn from a bunch of experts who've been doing it for a while. What I wanted to know was if anyone here has had any experience with these folks, and what they thought. I ask because I am considering taking some of the courses they offer and was just wondering what to expect. Honestly it seems like a pretty cool place, especially since I don't know about any other places that teach permaculture like this. Tell me what you think!
I have never been out there, but there are a bunch of videos on youtube with Joel talking about CRMPI, or speaking about their greenhouses, or others going through the site (I think Eric Toensmeier has one where he goes back and talks about how things have changed since he was working there).
Everything I've seen looks good to me.
Checking out the videos can give you a sense of how material may be presented in their courses. At the least, it is a taste of what the place and its people are like.

Ya thats a really good point. I've seen some of their videos, as well as some pictures on their website already, but I might end up watching a few more. From what I've seen, it feels like it is a very down-to-earth and practical environment although since I havn't been there I really can't say.
It would be really great to get someone with first hand experience at the place to talk a bit about it. Anyone?
This is my favorite show. And this is my favorite tiny ad:
