Yestermorrow Design/Build School
June 17, 2011

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.

The Great!

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

Teaching design.

Ways to make it better...

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

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

MY ROLE:
Board Member & I am on the Board of Directors and was a student in the Certificate Program for Sustainable Design and Building.

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.
