I was reading the course listings at the Earth Knack site and thought that
John Mionczynski sounded like a person the permaculture community might want
to connect with.  Or maybe people already have.  Anybody know him?

They also have some other international people that they will be connecting
up with for traditional skills, but there is not enough info yet to know if
people might already know of them.

Info below.

PLAN AHEAD for 2006 and 2007
Join Earth Knack on MEDICINAL PLANTS AND OLD WORLD WISDOM in the stunning
countryside of ZIMNE WODY, POLAND. You can expect an amazing cultural and
educational adventure! We will be hosted by Maciek and Magda Hawrylak in
their home village of Zimne Wody, which means cold water . We will learn to
identify, collect and understand the medicinal properties and interactions
of plants for curative and proactive medicines and food with guest
instructor John Mionczynski. Local elders will share traditional medicine
preparations and folk wisdom. Traditional skills in old world style like
cheese and sausage making, beer making, wood carving design and cultural
embroidery will be shown by local artisans. Poland is a treasure store of
largely unexplored archeological wonder. We will visit areas of
archeological interest that few people have yet seen. You will be immersed
in the daily rhythm and culture of the village of Zimne Wody, living with
local families and participating in their daily activities. Don't miss this
unique opportunity! Families welcome. Dates and prices to be announced:
local travel, meals, lodging and instruction included. We endeavor to keep
the daily rate around $100 for our international learning adventures. The
potential for a June 2006 (somewhere between the 4 - 18) trip can be
realized with the sign up of at least 6 participants. COME ON ALONG TO
EXPERIENCE A LEARNING ADVENTURE LIKE NO OTHER!
