Greetings all, 


While recovery moves ahead from the recent flooding in our garden and river
basin area.We intend to carry on with the upcoming Permaculture Design
Course, have all the necessary support here onsite to do so, and are very
much looking forward to the course!


We have a nearly full class with a few spaces available - let us know asap
if you'd like to join this permaculture adventure!  


This PDC, in fact, may have a great deal to share that would be hard found
at other times in terms of permaculture in action in the midst of responding
to changes.   While the flood damage to our agricultural and watershed
restoration work is major, there were no injuries to people or animals.  Our
camping area is undamaged and was well out of the way of the flooding in the
arroyo.  There is no damage to our class space, kitchen, homes, camping
areas, nor to our livestock (goat herd of 8, poultry of nearly 100).  Our
solar system is unscathed.  While we are sad to not be able to feed you
vegies from the garden, we have great local farm connections to supply our
catering, our usual bulk grains through the IV Coop, our Quail Springs'
dairy & poultry will feed the course as originally planned along with our
laden fruit trees and a good deal of preserved foods from the summer.
