"I am having some struggles recently, to attend college or not. I am studying but just taking classes I want to take, permaculture, botany, soil science, and a couple landscape designing, but currently no intention of attaining a degree. Besides the permaculture certificate. If I were to get a degree it would most likely be in the environmental studies department. "
The problem with college is the same as the 'ship of state", there is no compass in the wheel house: you must bring your own. Before you can make a good decision you must get some perspective. Work or internship is a good place to start. Every university class is a tool of some kind but from inside you cannot tell which ones are useful or valuable to you, and neither can anyone "inside". You can get insight from elders, leaders and employers on the 'outside' but there is nothing like working on a project to tell you what tools you actually need.
