In short: An opportunity to check out what Windward Community is up to.



Particularly, we'll be doing some work to establish *unirrigated* contour hedgerows as part of a largescale silvopasture system.



There will also be...

  • Press fresh apple cider (and learn about making hard cider)
  • Milk a goat and make goat cheese
  • Scratch a piglets belly
  • Mix and apply cob for the barrel oven
  • Tour and Explore Windward's village-stead, forest gardens, infrastructure and more
  • Walk through the living sanctuary of Herland Forest, natural burial cemetery, www.herlandforest.org.


  • All while picking the brains about the successes and failures of this 30 year old landbased community!

    Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work - Edison. Tiny ad:
