  • Hi,

    I am interested in this course, as well as other training opportunities as an organizer. I have been organizing around agriculture in Montana for 6 years and am looking for new ideas and inspiration for our work.

    Do you have any additional details about this course so I can assess if this will meet my needs, and budget for it?

    Thank you!

  • Hello, I’ve been an informal community developer since 2009 building collectives around art, technology and communal living. I’m looking to upgrade my pedagogy and skillset as I’m nearing a transition point in my life as a newly wed 2 years after establishing a collective home here in Lebanon. I’d like to help stabilize our house with more informed practices and share knowledge and skills with those who are joining the collective as community organizers. How can I join this workshop?
