The Lost Valley Educational Center has a vastly knowledgeable staff and is the perfect setting for students to gain a very in-depth understanding of both permaculture techniques and a realistic, first-hand experience in the challenges of eco-village living. I would highly recommend the LVEC's Permaculture program to anyone searching for intense, hands-on education in the creation of sustainable agriculture and communities.
