Dear Margie and Wes,
We had a great time at the Lawndale school tonight. Of all places called Lawndale and the city tried to have the Hendersons cut down their garden. The people across the street from them received an outdoor sign saying best yard design in Lawndale, put up by city officials to show what the Henderson's should look like. All the officials are gone now and the Henderson's are laughing to their garden. The school has so much potential for permaculture growth and needs education ASAP. Looks like I'll be building them a cob oven on a trailer to weave the community around them. Are you at LAEV this weekend?
Thanks for your amazing work,
Ray

Howdy Ya'll,

The long talked about training tour is getting ready
to launch. Below is the announcement and tour
itinerary in both in line text and as attachments.
  If you are interested in helping out by hosting
a training, providing us with
contacts along our route, or fundraising please
contact me at skillstour at gmail.com if possible.

The itinerary reflects the general timeframe we will
be in a certain area but course deviations of a few
hundred miles are absolutely possible at this point.
Remember if you are considering hosting a training it
does not have to be a huge event. We are happy to
teach 10 folks in someone's living room as well as
larger, more formal settings. We are not charging for
the trainings but plan on passing the hat to cover our
expenses (as well as donations from our supporters).

Blessed Be, Delyla


ANNOUNCING:
THE SKILLS FOR NEW MILLENNIUM TOUR
Cultivating Revolutionary Ways of Living

The PermiBus is Coming to Town!

The world as we currently know it is changing 
fast  peak oil, climate change, globalization, 
government infringement of personal rights
the list goes on.

What new world will emerge as we boldly step into 
this new millennium?  What will you contribute to 
shaping the future? What skills do you need to create your tomorrow?

The Skills for New Millennium Tour hits the road 
in 2008 bringing a skill set that helps prepares 
you to meet the challenges of the New Millennium. 
We know change can be intimidating. Therefore, 
the skills we offer; grounded in decades of 
activism, poverty and spiritual consciousness; 
emphasize making small, marginal changes that help you live what you believe.

The Earth Activist Training (EAT) PermiBus will 
be on the road, visiting communities nationwide, 
in order to offer you and your community 
practical skills that help you wrest control of 
your life from corporate hands. The PermiBus is a 
40-foot mobile permaculture demonstration project 
bus in progress; complete with solar power, 
greywater systems, composting toilet, three dogs 
and clutch of chickens.   Our goal?  To teach 
practical skills that can be used to make you and 
your community more sustainable.

The Skills for the New Millennium Tour offers 
programs to anyone who wants to host a Skills 
Event: individuals, community groups, high 
schools, colleges, intentional 
communities....  We know that community needs are 
diverse, so we offer a wide variety of program 
options that can be mixed and matched to best meet your needs.

Trainings are offered in three primary types of 
empowered learning experiences: trainings, 
facilitated discussions, and workshops in the 
areas of homesteading skills, life skills, and citizenship skills.
