Aprovecho Offers Gift Economy Workshops
Starting in April, we will begin offering weekend workshop on organic gardening and farming, natural building, permaculture and agroecology on a gift economy basis.
How It Works
We have faith that you will give us whatever amount, or none at all, that reflects your gratitude for our workshops; perhaps you will choose to pay us with a gift of money, or trade, or referrals, or going off and doing good in the world, or maybe with some or all of that. The point is, in the end, we will both feel like we were treated fairly.
Interest-Free Tuition Financing
We are now offering affordable, interest-free tuition financing to our students.
