We interns and a few outside attendees have a permaculture class with Theri every Tuesday from 6-9pm. This aspect of the internship is great because we get to learn the philosophy behind Bertrand Farm and our daily field work. An ongoing homework assignment we have is to pick a plot of land, draw it, and then add different things such as buildings, north direction, high and low spots, water holding areas, paths, plants and their location, etc. The list of things we add grows each week, and the end result will be a backyard permaculture plan we can put into action when the class is over. Since we interns are living here for the summer, Theri assigned us a plot in her backyard just to practice. When the class ends, I will upload a photo of my finished plans.
