It has 4 additional days so that we can give additional cirrculum and much extra hands-on experience. Most of the hands-on experience will be at a new 70-acre Permaculture  ecovillage

Young Farmer Scholarships (ages 20 - 32) are also available. If you know a candidate, please pass this on. Application here: http://cyberparent.com/dfw/rsvp.htm

All of us at Wildflower School and Research Center, Inc, believe that Permaculture should be available at costs that allow anyone who wants to practice it an affordable way to get the knowledge. In these uncertain times, it is more important than ever to learn and practice Permaculture. 

Class meets each day with 2 short breaks and lunch break. All students will take turns on the set up and cleanup crews. There will be homework in the time between weekend classes and design work and audits to be completed before Permaculture Design Certificate is awarded.
