In March, I will begin a 6 month long (one weekend a month) class gaining me a certification in Permaculture Design. In May, I will attend a design/build school in Vermont learning various methods and techniques for natural building. I hope to begin implementing some of the knowledge I learn in and around the Greensboro community. Ultimately, I hope to encourage, teach, and help others gain access to life practices that allow them live a healthy, affordable, sustainable, self-sufficient life style that honors their life and community as well as God's creation and provisions. I am humbly asking for your help with this new adventure.
The permaculture class is taught by Dr. Charlie Headington in Greensboro, NC. Information on his class is found here: http://www.earthmatters.info/permaculture.html
The natrual building certification is offered through Yestermorrow Design Build School. Information on this class and the school can be found here:
Here is a break down of the $8150 needed for these classes:
-$900= Permaculture class and books
-$4350= Tuition to Yestermorrow for NBC course
-$1230= Lodging in dorm on Yestermorrow's campus
-$1120= Meal plan at Yestermorrow during 6 week course
-$550= Travel to and from Vermont
The items listed in the "wish list" area are extra classes or experiences I hope to participate in if funding is available.
I am so excited to begin moving in this new direction. And I am so grateful for any support (whether financial or otherwise!) I receive. Thank you so much!
