Event Description

Course Teachers: Chuck Burr and Larry Korn.
Guest Instructor: Tom Ward

This is a two week 72 hour intensive design certification course held on a working permaculture farm. This course is based on Bill Mollison’s curriculum. There will be experienced guest instructors and site visits to working farms and gardens in and around the Rogue River Valley of southern Oregon.

You get to experience permaculture on a working farm. Two weeks of living permaculture, vegetarian meals, doing work in the soil, real world planning, all with a tight group of like minded people. There is a bonding experience that happens early on in the two week intensive course. It the purpose of this "residential" course. By being onsite you can focus, you remove the distractions, and it changes your life, literally.

Over the two weeks we will study:
Meta Systems: evidence, ethics, principles, and pattern design.
Natural Systems: climate, ecosystems, landform/earthworks, water, forests and trees.
Cultivated Systems: zones and sectors, microclimate, building design, mapping, energy and technology, waste treatment, plants and animals, aquaculture, gardening, making a living with permaculture, and farm market planning.

We are fortunate to have Tom Ward as a guest instructor on social forestry and how trees work including windbreaks, hedgerows, orchards, forest gardens.

On site camping space is included, as well as three vegetarian meals each day. You will also enjoy our new indoor classroom, hot showers, and onsite clothes washing. Please arrive on June 12th. Dinner will be provided that evening. We start at 800 am on Sunday, June 13th.

What to bring: sleeping bag, tent, pad, toiletries, headlamp, walking shoes, rain gear, water bottle, clock, journal, and drawing tools if you already have them for the design project. The weather is generally lovely this time of year. There is a Wi-Fi network if you have a laptop.

Chuck Burr is founder of Restoration Farm, an experienced farmer, permaculture designer, and author of Culturequake: The Fall of Modern Culture and the Rise of Earth Culture.

Larry Korn is also a permaculture designer. He worked for two years on Masanobu Fukuoka’s farm in Japan. He is the translator and editor of Fukuoka’s book, The One-Straw Revolution. Larry took his design certification course with Bill Mollison in 1981.

Tom Ward is a renowned permaculture teacher and consultant specializing in the Southern Oregon and Northern California region. His current talk topic is social forestry. Tom is the author of Greenward, Ho!, a manual on wildcrafting and herbal medicine..

Coronavirus News

Explosive If True: “I’m a Clinical Lab Scientist, C19 Is Fake, Wake up America” | The True Defender !

What we found was that all of the 1500 samples were mostly Influenza A and some were influenza B, but not a single case of Covid, and we did not use the B.S. PCR test. We then sent the remainder of the samples to Stanford, Cornell, and a few of the University of California labs and they found the same results as we did, NO COVID. They found influenza A and B. All of us then spoke to the CDC and asked for viable samples of COVID, which CDC said they could not provide as they did not have any samples. We have now come to the firm conclusion through all our research and lab work, that the COVID 19 was imaginary and fictitious. The flu was called Covid and most of the 225,000 dead were dead through co-morbidities such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes, emphysema etc. and they then got the flu which further weakened their immune system and they died. I have yet to find a single viable sample of Covid 19 to work with. We at the 7 universities that did the lab tests on these 1500 samples are now suing the CDC for Covid 19 fraud. the CDC has yet to send us a single viable, isolated and purifed sample of Covid 19. If they can’t or won’t send us a viable sample, I say there is no Covid 19, it is fictitious. The four research papers that do describe the genomic extracts of the Covid 19 virus never were successful in isolating and purifying the samples. All the four papers written on Covid 19 only describe small bits of RNA which were only 37 to 40 base pairs long which is NOT A VIRUS. A viral genome is typically 30,000 to 40,000 base pairs.

COVID-19 Nasal Swab Test Led To Cerebrospinal Fluid Leak | Forbes

Many who’ve had a nasal Covid-19 test performed on themselves have described it as feeling like that swab got as far back as their brains. If done correctly, the swab is angled parallel to the floor, all the way to the back of the nose, and the swab is rubbed on an area called the nasopharynx. The actual term is a nasopharyngeal swab, not nasal swab, because it’s the nasopharynx that contains the highest possible viral load to best determine an active Covid-19 infection. The distance from the average nasal tip to the nasopharynx is close to 6 inches. So if it feels like there’s a half a foot being stuck up your nose, well, you’re not so far off.

CDC says asymptomatic people don't need testing, draws criticism from experts | TheHill

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) quietly changed its guidance on Monday to now say that asymptomatic people do not need to be tested for coronavirus, even if they have been in close contact with an infected person. The agency made the move by updating its website but did not make any public announcement or explain the reasoning behind the major revision.  The guidance now states: “If you have been in close contact (within 6 feet) of a person with a COVID-19 infection for at least 15 minutes but do not have symptoms: You do not necessarily need a test unless you are a vulnerable individual or your health care provider or State or local public health officials recommend you take one.”

What Kind of Covid Test Should I Get? Answers on Cost, Accuracy and More | WSJ

There are two generally available types of Covid-19 tests. The first, and most commonly used so far, is a PCR test, which is short for polymerase chain reaction. It’s a molecular test, meaning it searches for the virus’s genetic material in a nasal swab or saliva sample, and it is often processed in a highly complex laboratory. There are two ways to collect a nasal sample: from the inside of a nostril, or from the back of the nose and throat. The second way, called a nasopharyngeal swab, requires a professional to probe more deeply into the nasal cavity to get the sample. Some testing sites may ask you to swab your nose or cheek yourself, or spit into a tube. Each of these collection methods creates a sample that can be analyzed with a PCR test. Antigen tests, which search the sample for viral proteins instead of the virus’s genetic code, are becoming more widespread in the U.S. Right now, antigen tests are typically offered at doctor’s offices, nursing homes, schools and other congregate settings where groups of people need testing fast.
