Worth More Than Gold

Skill Building & Education

“Our resilience is in our ability to be present in the present. To be conscious of our connectedness, not contrived from our past. From that now, we may redesign a distinct future”

-Fred Carter


Resilience is the foundation of all of our skill-building and education programming. In everything that we do, we honor the principles of:

Earth Care

People Care

Fair Share

Our skill-building and education programs encompass four key areas. Many programs span all the areas, as they are inherently interconnected:

Sustainable Agriculture

Sustainable Building

Renewable Energy


Community Permaculture Certification
CommUnity Learning Days
Rx Bags: Therapeutic Food Series
Lee A. Burns Reference Library
CommUnity Build Projects
Farm Apprenticeship
