Holistic Veterans is sharing global skills with local communities to create the next generation of self reliant, skillfull, sovereign leaders.
On our two acre farm in Gilroy, Ca we'll be creating a permaculture oasis lush with a wide variety of edibles, medicinals, soil-builders, and other supportive plant, animal, and insect species. During the process of transformation we'll be teaching teens, adults, and families how to create bio-diverse, off-grid, self-supportive ecosystems that are sustainable for life in every way.
We'll be teaching every step from design to implementation of permaculture systems.
Included in every weekend workshop will also be community time for activities such as playing sand volleyball, shooting bows in the archery range, making food together, as well as music circles around the fire pit.
On the property is also a double wide mobile home that we'll be renovating together over the course of many months.
