    I've been looking to learn more about permaculture practices and implementation.­ I will be leading Philadelphia teens this summer at a community garden in Camden, NJ with Hope Works and through the SCA (Student Conservation Association). I want to introduce the students to alternative ways of farming as we discuss food justice, and am hoping to implement a plot using permaculture principles. I'd LOVE to be able to take what I gain in the course straight to the comm. garden. Is there still room?!

    Hi Melissa,

    I am so happy to find this website and see what your doing in this area. I just came home from living in Australia where I became more aware of Permaculture. I spent much time trying to get into Robyn Frances school there. But unfortunately visas, money and a long story sent me back here. I would love to join your certificate course this Sunday. Is it possible to speak with you on the phone? Please let me know. I eagerly look forward to hearing from you. Warm Wishes, Ana Fischer

    Hi Melissa. I am looking to get involved and learn about permaculture. I WWOOFed at a permaculture farm and just finished a season with a CSA farm in Delaware County. I am looking for a peramculture farm in the northeast where I could work and learn this coming growing season. I am wondering if you can recommend any. My future goal is to start, along with other interested people, a permaculture farm near Philadelphia. I would love to hear about how you got your start in permaculture as well. thx
