sustainability and self-sufficiency are great but it's the disenfranchised who need them urgently...what working clas anybody will pay 55$ + 25$ for a workshop on permaculture? there is the possibility of getting in for free, but the outlandish price is sure to deter people.
by put up or...
It's easy to critique the efforts other people, but it's harder to actually offer a free, three-day workshop on permaculture, room and board included.
We are 100% volunteer and depend on your participation to sustain our efforts!
