Yestermorrow Design/Build School was founded in 1980 on the belief that the best built environments result from true collaborations between designers, builders and owners. Yestermorrow’s approach combines yesterday’s dedication to craft, beauty and durability with today’s technologies to create a sustainable world. Yestermorrow’s courses empower people and unleash their creative spirit. This synthesis is enhanced through the design/build method and the connection between hand and mind that unfolds in that process.


Yestermorrow design/build school teaches over 150 hands-on courses a year in design, construction, woodworking, and architectural craft and offers a variety of courses concentrating in sustainable design. Our workshops, certificate programs and semester programs are taught by top architects, builders, and craftspeople from across the country. For people of all ages and experience levels, from novice to professional.

I am particularly excited about the new semester programs which Yestermorrow has created. Students (from both undergraduate and graduate programs) are getting an amazing hands-on immersive experience designing and building a tiny house! As a former student and current board member, I can't recommend this program (or the school) highly enough.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Teaching design.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Help get the word out to those who don't know about it.

The Certificate Program (Sustainable Building and Design) gave me the foundation for a career in sustainable architecture. My favorite course was the Permaculture Design class, a 2 week foray into designing human environments based on the relationships found in natural ecologies. Teachers at Yestermorrow are passionate and extrememly knowledgeable, and the overall atmosphere at the school is one of striving to create a better world through good design. Great ideas, great people, great food - overall an A+.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

teach many many more people to build healthy, sustainable, beautiful, lasting buildings and landscapes.
