Work Study Information

I have been fortunate to have many different types of learning environments in my journey and one of the models that I have always had respect for was the work-study model.  The benefits far exceed the dollars saved on having to pay the fee for a course by allowing you the opportunity to take home a deeper connection to the land and a more in-depth engagement with the philosophy of your teacher.  The work is physical and dirty but rewarding.  It allows for teamwork and colloboration., and a collective vision that allows for the creation of a functional, beautiful and sacred energy to the land in which the teachings take place.
