Summer permaculture workshops

Hi Everyone,

At the workshop at Tom and Lee's, the Yeltons mentioned three workshops they were giving this summer. One was in Brooks (now) but I can't remember about the other two. Does anyone know when and where they are? Their website is not up to date and my son is interested in a beginning permaculture workshop or design course so we are looking around. Any ideas or links for anything in New England that a twenty year old might be interested in would be appreciated!

Thanks,
Winnie

Fifth Annual Three Week Permaculture Design Course
with Dave Jacke, Jono Neiger, and friends
July 20 - August 10, 2007
Sirius Community, Shutesbury, Massachusetts
Sponsored by Living Routes Ecovillage Education, Amherst, MA
http://www.livingrout...­.

This intensive course has built solid a reputation for its holistic, interactive style, for its strong design-training focus, and for the depth and breadth of participant's learning about all realms of ecological culture design. Imbibe permaculture design by engaging in permaculture DESIGN, using homes in the neighborhood--and Sirius Community itself--as your learning lab for two short design problems and one two-week-long design project. The course also includes field trips to local permaculture sites and old growth forest remnants, paradigm-shifting activities, interactive exercises, and hands-on projects and training. Primary instructor Dave Jacke is the author of Edible Forest Gardens, an award-winning two-volume book on ecological garden design, and has studied, practiced, and taught ecological design since the 1970s. Jono Neiger is a longstanding permaculture designer and practitioner, a conservation biologist, and an all around great guy who homesteads in Leverett, MA with his family. Dave and Jono and their two teaching apprentices create an incredibly well-rounded educational environment with multifunctional and functionally interconnected learning experiences for students of all kinds. If you successfully complete this course, you will know how to design permaculture systems, from basic map-making skills to public presentations of drawings that communicate complex site analysis and design ideas. This is a University of Massachusetts course offering 4 transferable undergraduate credits (Plant and Soil 398P).
