that students can design their lives and engage their communities in
strategies for a sustainable future.

"It is said that "abundance doesn't come from how much you have. Abundance comes from how many times each element is connected to the other elements." Through connection, we build abundance.

The core of permaculture is to build meaningful connection. "

A short little article about this course just came out this morning!

What other workshops will Kelda's permi-team be offering at Wild Thyme Farm this year?

I know I know. So sorry to post it late here but the COURSE IS CANCELLED.  Our enrollment was too low to make it a quality course, so we opted to offer other kinds of classes.

Some thoughts:

'Intro to Permaculture' Weekend Workshop

'Food Forest' Weekend Workshop

 

We would sincerely *love* to hear more ideas!!
