"The course was valuable to me because I've been working on building a base of knowledge rooted in plant life and earth preservation. I feel that I received a deeper and more comprehensive experience through the curriculum and the quality of the teaching at WSD. -Anon.
"Thank you for organizing such an informative, hands-on, beautiful, and hilarious course for all of us. I think each of us walked away from this with new knowledge and skills, but especially with rediscovered hope and excitement to carry on. The relationships and connections created in those 2 weeks are invaluable and will be sure to be continued." - H.C.
"I wanted to be exposed to and learn about systems related to permaculture, land management, farming, and community. I learned all that I had wanted to and more." - Anon.
"The course was great. It is a tremendous educational offering you have developed. Thank you very much for everything you did to make it so packed with learning opportunity and good fun." - S.W.
"The weeks gave form for me to both a system of thinking and some what of a structure for that thinking. It was a very worthwhile for me - much more than I could have anticipated. The group was terrific - it is a group of people, young people for me, who march to their own drummers or many of them do. It is impressive and speaks to the energy and effort that you put into it, that we ended up becoming a real group." -E.K.
