Has anyone on this listserv participated in this colloquium, or does
anyone know someone who has? It sounds like an amazing and fun
experience, but do participants walk away with any hands-on experience?
I ask, because I've been thinking about volunteering for Habitats for
Humanity, or the local equivalent (the name of which I've forgotten) as
a means of not just helping but learning skills at the same time. Comments?
