ABOUT THE INSTRUCTORS
Cathe' Fish, international educator and founder of Practical Permaculture Research Institute, is a 23 year Master Gardener, and has been teaching passive solar and permaculture systems for 25 years. She has designed 40 acre farms to backyards. She taught Sustainable Solar Kitchens at the International Permaculture Convergence in Jordan in September 2011.

Cliff Jepsen grew up on a working farm and became disenchanted watching farming turn to monocrops and industrial confined animal factories. He became a Master Gardener in 2003. His enthusiasm for agriculture returned when he earned his Permaculture Design certificate that year. He oversaw the Children's Garden Program in Trinity County for 3 years. He and his wife Nora Heiber purchased Allsgood farm in January 2011, and have dedicated the beautiful farm to permaculture stewardship.
