2022 SKIP: Skills to Inherit Property – MT
July 11, 2022 @ 8:00 am - July 22, 2022 @ 5:00 pm CDT$1400
SKIP is a curriculum of experiences you can complete to prove you can do permaculture. While a PDC teaches you how to do permaculture design and analysis, SKIP is hands-on. You are making things.
When you complete several things, you earn a badge. Sixteen badges will make you PEP1 certified. After several years of progress, you can be PEP3 or PEP4 certified. At that point you are basically self-sufficient and can prove it. Many older homesteaders don’t want their property to turn into a strip mall or subdivision. This program will connect qualified candidates with those landowners so you can skip the rat race and skip the debt.
In this program, you will gain and demonstrate new skills. It isn’t about training, classroom time or lengthy discussion. It’s about pounding out actual projects. This event will be heavily focused on giving attendees the ability to complete badges. It’s our third event like this.
There will be a guide/facilitator for all the planned work. The attendees will be focused on a given task for each time slot. If they complete it quickly, there is time to complete additional badges. If they want to take their time, that is fine, but they may not complete as many badges during the event.
Paul will provide three simple meals a day at no charge, but food is not included with your ticket. If you have special dietary needs/desires, you might want to bring your own food and use our rocket cook stoves, ovens, solar ovens and other cooking contraptions.
