I was wondering if anybody here has attended one of the EcoVillage Apprenticeships at The Farm in Summertown, Tn. It's something I've been looking into in a few years after dh gets out of the military. I'd love to do the construction program.
If anyone has done this, what did you think of it? Was it useful? Were families welcome? Any other information would be nice, as well. Thanks!

WE have not done the apprenticeship, but we have visited the Farm. It's a great pace to visit. The food is yummy and the people are very nice. It is so peaceful down there.

I'd love to know what it was like when you get back. I live within about 4 hours from The Farm, and I'd love to visit there and get a feel for the place. Perhaps even move there.
