*Hands-On Permaculture Skills Camp- **Certificate Course and Organic Farm
We return for our third year to Four Elements Farm to live the rhythm of
farm life and experience hands-on permaculture.
*October 17-30, 2010 | San Luis Obispo County
The site for our course is Four Elements Farm, a 47 acre Natural Building
Learning Center and organic farm nestled in the steep chaparral hills of
California's central coast. Hands-on opportunities on the organic farm and
garden abound throughout the course: chickens, beekeeping, composting, fruit
tree management, harvesting, planting and more. The farm is also home to 4
Elements Foods and Elemental Herbs Co.
As both backdrop and center stage for the design course, the farm provides
us with the opportunity to experience the revitalization process associated
with the use of permaculture principles. Halfway between San Francisco and
Los Angeles, San Luis Obispo is America's coastal heartland, where
agriculture and ranching are still important parts of life. The Farm is
minutes away from world-class wine country and unspoiled beaches... Optional
field trips, wine tasting beaches, farmers markets and Big Sur Excursion.
