We believe that the best way to learn something is by doing it! Our hands-on programs will provide the stage, tools, and guidance for students to express their creativity and imagination while completing tangible projects in several different fields related to permaculture, sustainability, biology, natural building, renewable energy, agroforestry, botany, design thinking, food preservation, waste management, community building and much more.
