Hello my fellow Permies, I hope everyone is having a Great start to the new year!
I am very excited to announce that Sepp Holzer will be coming to California, and I'm very pleased that he has agreed hosting an advanced practitioners course. It will be April 8th-12 in Petaluma CA. We have all the permits and this will be an opportunity for some intense hands on experience.
Note: In the dailyish email announcement, Cassie mentioned that this was a ten day course but that was actually a mix up. It is only 5 days. Just to clarify for everyone.
Thus far it will be Sepps only trip to the Americas this year. Space is very limited and we are only accepting a maximum of 10(ten) participants. I welcome any questions or comments, either here on the forum or feel free to send me a PM.
Since we are accepting such a small number of participants, we would love to have people who have had extensive permaculture experience. However, if you are motivated and have a tenacity that we feel comes through in your application, we would hundred percent accept you.
Basically, we are looking for people who are somewhat versed in sepp permaculture and or willing to get up to speed. We want people with bright eyes and open hearts thirsting for knowledge, open minded, and able to "learn to read the book of nature." And we are willing to help get people up to speed on the basics before the course begins, by emailing an info packet, answering questions on the forums, recommending videos to watch, etc. whatever is most appropriate.
We are also very willing to answer basic questions ourselves, before or during the workshop. In fact, Jacob and are setting up systems to help orient people before the workshop and take care of 'filtering' out some of the more basic questions during the workshop.
We want people to have an idea of what they are coming to see and ready to absorb as much as possible.
I think if we are forthright and explain all of this in the best of terms we can attract the right people, and make a better time for all involved. That said we don't want to make people feel like they aren't advanced enough, that is not the point at all.
Hey folks i would love some feedback from anyone who has been to a Holzer event in the Past. What could have been done to enrich your personal experience?
For this course I am hoping to have lots of material for different potential projects. Log hive building, Mushroom inoculation, Tree planting, Seed mix creation, Terrace and retention space construction. spring casing. Then with some direction Students will be unleashed on a project of their choice.
