Hi All,

We're offering a workshop in a couple weeks on how to build an outdoor oven from cob. You can see it here, if you're interested: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/earth-ovens-art-tickets-36943273325 My question is, we want to start offering videos of our workshops in order to make the knowledge and skills more accessible. A lot of people can't afford to attend a live class, so we're thinking about making it available though "pay-what-you-will" donations toward scholarships. Would that be something the community finds valuable? What would you recommend that we do for this workshop to make the video really valuable to you?

Thank you for your time!

Hi! I'm new to posting on here, but I want to get involved with the online permie community. We offer workshops and courses, but also, I just want to join the conversation and not only see how we can better serve the sustainable living community, but also learn from you.

I want to know how you would/are teaching your kids about natural building? Homeschooling, workshops, projects? What do you suggest? We hope to make natural building accessible and inspiring to kids.

We also offer a Cobbing for Families workshop on September 23rd. You can check it out https://www.eventbrite.com/e/cobbing-for-families-tickets-37049415800. Let me know what you think, and if there's a way to make it better for kids and families.

Thank you!

Permaculture Practicum in Water and Forestry Systems at Aprovecho: Last week to register!

The Permaculture Practicum in Water and Forestry Systems at Aprovecho (Cottage Grove, OR)

Join us for seven weeks of applied hands on education as we explore the regenerative power of trees and water to restore landscapes, increase farm resilience, and increase economic health.  This course is designed for farmers, land owners, contractors, and students seeking to deepen their on-the-ground Permaculture skill-set at a level that empowers them to design and install regenerative forest and water systems on their land and within their communities.  This program embeds students within three integrated focus areas: agroforestry and perennial food systems, timber based forest management, and water harvesting and may be taken as an entire series or by the individual week.  When taken as a series, the course is is designed to be a teacher guided / participant driven forestry planning process.  The series is presented as a holistic framework for planning and installing integrated Permaculture based forestry systems that are both ecologically regenerative and economically sustainable.  

Week 1 (Sept. 25-28 ): Reading the forested landscape
Week 2 (Oct. 2-5): Sustainable Timber Management
Week 3 (Oct. 9-12): Agroforestry and Forest Gardening
Week 4 (Oct. 16-19): Survey and Design of Earthworks and Water (part of whole series only)
Week 5 (Oct. 22-25): Planning and Installing Permaculture Earthworks
Week 6 (Oct. 28-31) Habitat Restoration
Week 7 (Nov. 5-11) Synthesis (part of whole series only)

Aprovecho’s forest is a mosaic of wild woodland, riparian forest, conifer forest, orchards, forest gardens, and other agroforestry systems. The forest has been managed sustainably for a multitude of products for 30 years and sets a powerful example of long term regenerative forest management in the Pacific Northwest. This series is designed to contribute to an ongoing forestry planning process on Aprovecho’s site and is a unique opportunity to participate in the development of a 10-year Forest Stewardship Plan at Aprovecho. The Forest Stewardship plan, a project supported by the Oregon Department of Forestry, is a site specific plan which provides resources and recommendations for the use and conservation of forested lands.

Hi all, I wanted to let you know about our Appropriate Technology and Off-Grid Homesteading program at Aprovecho.

The Appropriate Technology Series is a four-week course designed to empower students with the ability to implement simple, energy-saving technologies in the home, on the farm, or in the field.  From solar cookers to methane digesters; rocket stoves to off-grid electrical systems, this four-week course delves into the science of sustainability while teaching the practical skills necessary for applying these technologies in the real world. This course will also be appropriate for those exploring new, green vocations in sustainability. By working with professionals in the field, students will be exposed to potential career pathways in appropriate technology and beyond. Take the series as a whole or choose week-by-week depending on your interest.

Hello, all! I just wanted to pass on the word about Aprovecho's 2 year PDC and sustainable living skills immersion program. We offer two PDCs, including a 2-week PDC in the spring and a 6-week PDC in the summer, followed by a 2-month practicum in Permaculture Forest and Water Systems. The 2nd-Year track is a 9-month paid internship. Each segment can be taken separately, or it can be followed as an educational and career track.

We also offer an interest-free payment plan and sustainable business development workshops and grants to start your own permit business!! Check us out at aprovecho.net!
