Globally, we are experiencing unpredictable changes in climate, economy, and resources. Through intentional design, we can anticipate what adaptive skills will be necessary for a joyful and abundant future. In this permaculture design course, students will be immersed in strategies to build community resilience and respond to uncertainties of the future. Our stellar teaching team will offer a 144-hour permaculture curriculum with a focus on hands-on skill-building in food production, plant propagation, and energy systems. The Wild Thyme Farm, a premier permaculture demonstration site, offers an immersion in examples of beautiful and productive polyculture gardens, a 100 acre FSC certified forest, and strategies for rural revitalization. Through presentations, slides, games, lectures, field trips, and hands-on opportunities, this permaculture course will offer diverse learning styles to emphasize ways that students can design their lives and engage their communities in strategies for a sustainable future.
I have stuff in missoula on feb 28 and the evening of march 7. I figure on heading to seattle on march 1. I need to be in southern oregon in the late afternoon of march 3. I was hoping to stop by and see rick valley in dexter on the way down - maybe mid day on march 3. I'll be driving back up to seattle late on march 6 and then driving to missoula super early on march 7 to be back by the evening event.
Got it! Now moving this discussion into email, as I don't want to bore people with the details. We may just encourage our students to study up on your articles and videos before the class starts, and then we can do 'An Evening with Paul Wheaton' for any questions you have.
BTW, you can holler and make fun of students all you want at the convergence when I'm too busy elsewhere, and I admit that it makes the event have its own appeal. .. But if I'm in the classroom and those are My students you're shooting down, then you're going to have to reckon with one big bad mama bear.
