Want to learn about sustainable farming but don’t have the time to participate in a long-term WWOOF (World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms) volunteer exchange program? Then you may be interested in the Perennial Agriculture Immersion class, a three-week course in August hosted by the Urban Farm School in Asheville, NC. The program includes hands-on workshops, classes, and field trips that will teach students how to sustainably farm crops, design permanent woodsheds, manage pests, and keep bees and chickens. The fee, which includes lodging and tuition for 18 days from August 10 through August 28, is $2,200.
