Three classes to start and all on two days a week. Big start and I hope to get this degree done before the descent.

2 DHA3xxx Symbols and Identity ( to build my symbol conventions for plant relationships)
3 Evaluating Effective Polycultures (serious evaluation of existing Polycultures and their effectiveness, structure and design)

Also Teaching at Brown College two other days.
That leaves one day to work. Friday.

Permaculture and Polyculture Consulting and Design

Permaculture and Polyculture Consulting and Design
Getting to know your property, the plants you have and those you can grow, is a fulfilling endeavor. With most I am the steward of the land. I give them good soil biology and they do the rest. If I group them in cohesive plant communities, they respond with greater yields. If I encourage the micro-organisms (Fungus and bacteria) , the roots obsorb more nutrients making a pest and disease resistant plant. A stronger plant that gives us more organic food and takes less energy.
