Field Training at the Old Stone House Gardens goals:

  • Learn design skills and biological gardening through hands-on experience and direct observation.
  • Interact with a landscape designed specifically to survive climate chaos.
  • Increase the dynamic life level – and thus the livability – of a landscape.
  • Explore stewardship of an undefined public commons.
  • Understand what makes a landscape useful.

Led by PINA certified permaculture educator and designer, Claudia Joseph.
