    i understand that the instructors teaching the class are brand new and are being advised only by the two seasoned instructors,Adam and Kelly. This slightly misstates the class instructors apparent billing as kelly and Adam are on top and are only advisors to the other instructors.

      Hi David,

      I reached out to the teaching team with your comment and Kelly replied (I am pasting in her reply as she is not a WordPress member):

      Hi David – Thanks for asking. You are correct that this course is being taught by seasoned lead instructors, Adam and Kelly, working with a guild of apprentice instructors, Tara, Avery and Mike. Your assumption about misstatements and “only advising”, however, is incorrect.

      Adam and Kelly are the lead instructors who are teaching this course along with a guild of apprentice, developing permaculture instructors. These talented, knowledgeable apprentice instructors are experienced in many aspects of teaching permaculture design, they all have a permaculture teaching certificate and are not new to teaching. Apprenticing in a course (or several) is the next required step in their development as excellent permaculture design teachers. They will be teaching parts of the course under the mentorship of Adam and Kelly. Either Adam or Kelly, or both, will be present for the entire course and personally teaching many parts of the course.

      As mentors, we do advise our apprentice instructors, but that is not all we do. We also review their lesson plans and provide instruction. We also teach many parts as our apprentice instructors watch and learn. This is the role of lead teachers working with apprentice instructors. It’s how we develop excellent instructors in permaculture design and deserves your support.
