     2003 Wisdom at the End of a Hoe Workshops

     Land and Watershed Assessment and Restoration
     With Bob Cannard, Brock Dolman, Dennis Martinez, Penny Livingston-Stark, and Kathy Wallace
     August 1-3, 2003
     Tunitas Creek Ranch, Half Moon Bay, CA
     $325-$375 sliding scale, includes lunch

     Learn how to assess the land by reading the landscape for clues of its natural history and ecological potential.  Develop an
     understanding of ecological literacy and learn how to design practical remedies that encourage biodiversity. These
     presenters have a wealth of experience in land restoration, invasive species mitigation, permaculture and Native American
     forestry management systems. The landscape of the beautiful Tunitas Creek Ranch is made up of riparian corridors, steep
     slopes, pastures, high ridges, small orchards, and an abundance of native vegetation.

     Presenter biographies and program details are available on our Web site at   http://bioneers.org/rdi/03ewf.html

     Making the Connection Between Locally Grown Food and Community
     With Michael Ableman, Rick Knoll, Will Bullock, Laura Tourte and others
     August 21-24, 2003
     Center for Urban Agriculture at Fairview Gardens, Goleta, CA
     $325-$375 sliding scale, includes lunch

     There is a common misconception that food for our society must be grown far from the places where most of us live and
     work. This is no longer the case. In the most unlikely of places, under some of the most challenging environments, urban
     dwellers are establishing economically viable urban farms.

     This intensive three-and-a-half-day workshop, presented by Bioneers and the Center for Urban Agriculture at Fairview
     Gardens, will focus on practical strategies for land acquisition, space intensive production, soil fertility, propagation of
     specialty crops, successful local marketing and developing local food systems. Participants will come away with clear
     direction and a "tool kit" for how to begin or enhance existing operations.

     Saturday evening there will be an optional on-farm dinner to provide an opportunity to network and exchange ideas.
