Educating, Engaging, Empowering

We believe education and sharing knowledge empowers families, organizations, and communities to evolve into the social capital network of connected, skilled people which is proven to be the foundation of resilient communities. Our course offerings are all aimed at teaching individuals how to design resilient lifestyles, landscapes,and communities through knowledge and skill development. Our courses are designed to be as interactive as possible and to provide experiential, student-centered learning.
