Our Field Studies classes cover sustainable desert dwelling skills in a fun, engaging, and (mostly) digital environment.
Classes include topics such as composting toilets, laundry-to-landscape greywater systems, native edible landscapes, building healthy desert soils, and rain tank irrigation systems.
To eliminate access barriers to our educational offerings, we invite everyone to participate regardless of your ability to pay. If you have the means, please consider supporting our educational programming through making a donation so we can continue to reach as many folks as possible.
