Organic Master Gardener - ONLINE
Online
Instructors:

Be prepared for a major shift in paradigms! This is a gardening course, and so much more. Students have called it "life changing" - because once we truly understand the connection between soil health, plant health, human health and environmental health we look at the world with different eyes.

This is our core course. It's intense - challenging - inspiring, and taking the country by storm!

You will get the same comprehensive, professional curriculum as the Organic Horticulture Specialist course, but discussions will generally reflect the interests of a more mixed audience including home gardeners, budding farmers and landscape professionals. Depending on registrations, we may combine students from both courses to keep class sizes manageable!

Your Genius is Calling: The Courage to Be Who You...
Classroom
Instructors: Hilary Leighton

It takes conscious courage to listen for what whispers to the soul, especially within a culture that tends to denigrate the impulses of the deeper self-intuition, feeling, sensing, instinct, imagination and dreams. It is a great loss to let these calls fall away, or worse yet, deny them entirely. Clear a space to bring your original blessings to bear, awaken to what initiates you toward life’s deeper purpose and your own true nature. Step onto your genuine (genius) path and then live to give it away.

Difficult Conversations
Classroom
Instructors: Paul Mohapel

We all dread them – having to confront a challenging co-worker, customer, or friend about a difficult and uncomfortable issue. Often we handle the situation very poorly, and it is impossible to completely avoid the person or people involved. This workshop offers insights into the multiple layers beneath each conversation and provides advice for handling these difficult exchanges in a manner that addresses the core issues. If you’re interested in improving your communication skills and reducing conflict, this workshop will provide strategies to make challenging conversations calmer and more productive.
