We're planning some epic events for 2018! And we'd like some feedback.

annual events
Currently, we are thinking these will be annual events, and the webpages will updated as soon, though as of this post might still be showing 2017 event information.
  • wheaton labs pdc (permaculture design course):  https://richsoil.com/pdc.jsp
  • wheaton labs atc (appropriate technology course):  https://richsoil.com/atc.jsp
  • rmh workshop jamboree (rocket stove mass heaters):  https://richsoil.com/rmh-workshop.jsp (note: we are not having a jamboree in 2018 )
