Yestermorrow Design/Build Classes in Vermont

I am drooling over the Yestermorrow Design Build School and though it is almost the end of January, I have a new, new years resolution.

I will attend a class of some sort (at the yestermorrow school or likewise) and learn a new hands on do it myself building technique.

As I peruse the course offerings of the Yestermorrow school (in the Mad River Valley of Vermont), I am intrigued by the Earthen Oven building course, the art of  stone working course (with my new crush Thea Alvin), or maybe I will learn to make a willow canoe, or participate in the yurt design/build class.  My head is swimming with the excitement of possibilities.

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.

    I would totally want to go to the Concrete Counter class! I think it would be very interesting to build our own counter. However I am already going to the Organic Growers School Conference: . Not sure I can interest the husband in a trip to Vermont just to learn to make a countertop.

    It looks like an awesome school though. So many topics to choose from.

    I love the small-house building workshops. I wasn’t familiar with before reading your post.
