I think that the OMG was the single most enjoyable course I have taken (independent of a program). I think the course has taught me an immense amount, so much so that I don't even think I know how to put it into words. This year I am planning on growing most of my own food, not just eating from my garden.... but preserving it for the winter and also growing cold storage crops, and having a cold frame for some delectables to stay in the ground. I am doing this for my soul, and for the love of food that has taste!Charlese Nan 

Our Unique Programs

Holistic practices require knowledge of the natural processes upon which all life depends. Therefore the information presented in our programs is highly integrated, reflecting the integration of natural systems and processes.

To facilitate this paradigm shift we have developed our own comprehensive instructional materials, guiding students step-by step towards a new understanding of how nature works.

Students will be able to apply this knowledge in diverse situations, ranging from ornamental horticulture to small scale food production and environmental stewardship.

Our programs are designed to

  • Assist current professionals in their transition to sound environmental practices
  • Enable new students to become knowledgeable professionals in their fields of study
  • Provide a cooperative learning environment for the expression of ideas and knowledge
  • Be widely and easily accessible
