hey jennifer! you may register either by responding to the greencountrypermaculture at gmail.com addy, or indicating your intent on this facebook page:
i have visited with sam at length, he has an exemplary grasp of the practice. as well, matthew truelove has laboured with love on that garden site for a number of years now producing a fine array of crops. (i have a little bit of arugula in my fridge right now from there) with successful participation and interest, this will take the garden to a whole next level. at the same time, what is now called the phoenix house is in transition from a noble attempt at a neighborhood grocery and social gathering place into more of an arts and healing center. the introduction of the permaculture discipline will help provide a healthy, literal grounding to the ongoing community building.
