Yestermorrow Design/Build School
March 1, 2010

Best short run programs on sustainability in the nation! This school is really amazing. Amazing ideals, excellent instructors and helpful staff. Set in a beautiful location with top notch class offerings from edible forest gardens to farm design build, micro hydro to drystacked stone and strawbale building. The classes are well structured, taught by expert professionals and the atmosphere genuinely refreshing. Did I mention the food is amazing. I would and do recomend this school to anyone interested in a hands on learning experience on hard to find class topics. Yestermorrow offers classes you can't find anywhere else and offers longer term study through their certificate programs.

The Great!

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

bringing sustainable natural building techniques to my hometown from what I learned at Yestermorrow.

Ways to make it better...

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

Give them more land and funds to keep doing what they are doing,

More feedback

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the passion of the staff, instructors, AND students.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

friendly, helpful, and knowledgable.

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

open the minds of builders and consumers across the nation to sustainable design and build through local and regional projects.

Ways to make it better...

I could have stayed there longer.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

getting their name out there to interested donors.

One thing I'd also say is that...

takng classes at Yestermorrow is life changing and I have never met anyone who didn't enjoy it, learn tons of hard to find knowledge and go away inspired to make a change.
