In 2008 I attended the Linnaea Ecological Garden Programme on Cortes Island BC. I was part of a student learning community guided by Linnaea’s amazing and highly experienced farm stewards and the fauna and flora of the land. We focused on organic farming techniques and permaculture. During this eight month Permaculture Design Course, we worked as design teams with an on-island client/land assessment practicum. It was a wonderful year! 85% of Linnaea graduates continue on to focus on food production, policy and education, as well as permaculture design and teaching, and more.
