1) how long should a new booter stay before seeing progress in projects( building/planting/ projects started with a team/group)?
..honestly it all sounds interesting and material i'd like to learn. My only concern is how long I take off work. to try out your program. (asking in advance to request time off).



When you show up, the work will be whatever is the highest priority at the time.   While simultaneously trying to keep the experiences a little varried.  

Most of the people in the bootcamp now have been here for several months.   One person has been here only four weeks or so, but it is her third time here.

Does this help answer your question?

Yes thank you, I have done some thinking overnight; and have decided to just give it my all, leaving the job behind, and shoot for my dream. Besides, IF I come back, I plan to be an excelled version of myself and put my growth to the table to better myself.

Also, silly question, but will you teach one to stay warm throughout the winter? Coming from such a warm climate I feel that would be the hardest challenge but worth it. However, I don't want to get sick before I get started. Maybe like projects for shelters or is there a list I can reference for towards appropriate attire..because even the fluffiest of Floridas jackets are still thin as heck compared to Michigans winter weather.

Jocelyn made this thread to talk about the weather here:

https://permies.com/t/58173/permaculture-projects/weather-wheaton-labs-montana-winters

It snows and stuff, but it isn't all that cold.  

December is the coldest month of the year, and the average high is 33 and the average low is 19.  We're in December now and today's high will be 42 and the low will be 27.  

These pics might paint a picture:





We don't really teach how to be warm.   But there did seem to be a flurry of cold weather shopping a couple of months ago.   General rules:  avoid cotton, and many layers are your friend.

I'd like to look at the area before purchase n traveling across the country to let my family know I'm all good going solo. If you dont want it on your site, maybe you could email me it , if you're comfortable with that?

We don't share those particulars until after the fee is paid.
