This is a post on one of my favorite blogs by the greenhorns website. If you don’t know it it check them out online. Anyways this post is an example of small scale programs for communal education of agriculture and “craft” skills in Virginia. Students learn skills with the intention of going out and helping communities build common gardens and local food systems. It is similar to our class topic, but more hands on and physical. There are lots of cool options out there.
