Join members of the Quail Springs Permaculture community as they share from their collective wisdom, stories, and experiences gathered from living together on a working farm and educational site. Covering topics such as awareness of nature's language, tracking patterns and cycles, designing and managing farm systems that intertwine with nature, human nature and social dynamics, and how daily nature routines can deepen awareness and relationships with the surrounding natural world, including one's self and others.
