Other Special Workshops

Plans are underway for several special movie-study workshops, featuring video from the Centro de Investigación, Desarrollo y Enseñanza en Permacultura (CIDEP), the Centro de Investigación y Enseñanza en Agricultura Sostenible (CIESA), and other Acronym-laden organizations. These are great films about Permaculture, Natural Building, Biointensive food production, and more. The class will teach the vocabulary and help interpret what these people are saying as they talk about their cool projects. Check the website often for updates.
