8 weeks in the bootcamp in exchange for a ticket to one event - Arrival date is April 9
15 weeks in the bootcamp in exchange for two events - Arrival date is February 26.
21 weeks in the bootcamp in exchange for three events - Arrival date is January 15.
If you want to earn your ticket to an event by working in the bootcamp, it is best to show up way earlier that you need to. Stuff happens, and it has benefited many people to add some "buffer time" to make sure they work the necessary number of days.
If someone wanted to earn a ticket to the PDC:
1) They must earn their ticket before the event sells out
2) They must earn their ticket prior to the beginning of the event.
You'd need to arrive by April 9, 2023 to earn your PDC ticket with bootcamp work, but if tickets are first-come-first-served, so if they sell out you will be wait-listed. If you want to make sure you get that ticket, you might think about coming out this year and locking in your spot.
To get in on the work trade, you gotta fork over $100 - unless you have already been here for anything in the past. In which case, the work trade is entirely free. The bootcamp does not currrently have a waiting list, but you still need to submit your payment and fill out a questionnaire thing to get in. This means that you might want to put in your time in the bootcamp this year so you can attend events next year.
My name is Kellie Harnar and I am interested in your Permaculture design course happening this summer 2023. We are from Whitefish but have been living in California the last three years taking care of my parents. In September our youngest went to college so my husband and I bought an RV and decided to travel the country and decide where we want to buy a piece of land. We are currently in Austin, Texas and will be attending the greater reset conference next week… Looking forward to seeing you speak there!
Unfortunately, right before the holidays my husband was laid off. I am sure he will find a position soon, but in the meantime we decided to use this opportunity to visit different farms. I came across your site last year and I’m very interested in doing the two month stay/work in exchange for a chance to participate in the Permaculture design course in June. My husband‘s job has been remote for the last 20 years, so staying there would not be a problem. We have a 24 foot self-contained RV with solar. We also have two dogs, one of whom is paralyzed in his hind legs. I read that you might need someone to build a dog park, we would love to do that!
Please contact me when you get a chance and let me know your thoughts. I think everything you have created and are doing is outstanding, thank you for that!
I suggest huckleberry pie. But the only thing on the gluten free menu is this tiny ad:
