Well, the day has finally arrived! This afternoon our PDC participants, faculty, and family members will celebrate the beginning of the transformative experience we are about to embark on at Bear Roots Farm. Wooohooo!
This past week has been a whirlwind of activity as we prepared for the next two weeks of immersive Permaculture instruction. Vic, Aaron, and an awesome team of helpers worked tirelessly on preparing the site for our students. The barn "classroom" got a new set of stairs, the woods were prepped to become a wonderful camping area, solar showers were installed, and much more!
Later today we will all convene at Bear Roots for an opening ceremony led by herbalist and PDC guest speaker, Annie McCleary with a celebratory potluck to follow. Tomorrow marks day 1 of instruction with lead teacher Andrew Faust introducing the structure of the course and the framework for the next two weeks.
We will do our best to update you all as the course progresses, so stay tuned! Also, don't forget our Regional Design workshop is very, very soon! Things are really coming together on that end, and we are thrilled to be able to collaborate with such a experienced and passionate group of individuals.
