Spring 2020 Program

(March 1 – May 31)

All Programs at Aloha include an in-depth community living experience and more skills and learning than can ever be planned or explained here, but the following programs offer a slight specialization for this who have an interest to learn dive a bit deeper and learn the following:

CONNECTION TO GARDENING AND FOOD SYSTEMS

 

The Connection to Food Systems Course is the backbone of Aloha and runs 9 months a year. In the first 3 months of the year we learn a lot of planting and transplanting, we learn garden planning and crop rotation and co-planting, we learn soil preparation and irrigation systems.

Connection to food also includes the kitchen and help preparing the food for our nourishment. 

 

NATURAL BUILDING AND HOW TO BUILD WITH RAMMED EARTH 

 

The first 3 months of 2020 will see us build using a technique called SIREWall, which stands for Structurally Insulated Rammed Earth. Learn More about SIREWALL here.
