In a handful of days, Daniel and I shall be heading out to western MA to start our Permaculture Certification course. This will be a four part series.
The Butterfly Forests Homestead, shall be implementing permaculture techniques. By having Daniel and I learn in-depth of what permaculture is, and it’s fundamentals; this shall be quite valuable in helping create lush, self-sustainable green growth (to benefit environment, animal and community). When I need help working on the ‘farm’.. erm… I do not want the Butterfly Forests Homestead to be called a farm. It instantly places what we are and what we do, in a stereotypical mind-set of what a common-known farm is like (overshadowing everything else we create and do):
A place that stinks of animal waste, tractors, people dressed in baggy-dusty-caked clothes (no, not all people who work with mother nature are pinned to the norm ‘run-of-the-mill outfit’), working out in the field all-day, waking-up before dawn daily, to people who are glued to their jobs (no vacations, or ability to really do anything else.. besides taking care of the farm) .. Farmers are also considered by the masses in America, as of the ‘stupid-low minded’ type (as if farming is the best they can do in their life). It saddens me to say this description of what a stereotypical farmer is known widely in America.. but, that’s certainly not the Butterfly Forests Homestead; nor am I going to be associated with it.
*sighs* Well, anyway (gets off of her soap-box). 😛 haha
I really look forward to attending the permaculture classes and obtaining a certificate. 🙂
When we come back from the four day class (Part one of four) – I shall update this blog post with photos. 🙂 ❤ The permaculture certificate program shall be held by ‘Sowing Solutions.’
