Weeks 7 and 8: Tidepool Treasure Hunt, Seasonal Gardening, and the Incredible Water Storage Tank Challenge
In week 7 the RDNAers start by going out to the beach to learn that there is more to tracking then following animals. Then they go tide pooling and harvest some seafood dinner. They next day they find themselves doing a permaculture site analysis, learning about seasonal gardening and planting garlic!
In Week 8 the group finds itself working with water. Not only does the group get to retrofit a habitat pond, they also get to install a rainwater catchment system to supply it! So much to learn....so little time.
Weeks 5 and 6: Wild Foods, Ancestors and GARLIC
In week 5 The RDNAers learn about wild foods and how to make delicious wild food bars with guest instructor Matt Berry. The team also studies erosion on landscapes and learns how to slow, stop and sink water in order to mitigate the erosion.
Weeks 3 and 4: Fire, Site Analysis, Elk and Dirt
In week 3, the RDNA team works on primitive fire building skills, finding out that it's easier when you learn together!
Following setting things on fire, they hone their skills to assess what is going on with the land, what plants are here, where does the water move, and who is that strange man standing in the corner?
In week 4, the RDNAers track a herd of elk in west Marin, and get their hands in the dirt planting vegetables to take home in grow in their window sills.

Byron Palmer - Commonweal Garden work trader, RDNA participant, and videographer - documents the RDNA experience through his eyes. Keep up with Byron and his "Village" with new blogs each week or month.
During weeks 1 and 2, Byron and the RDNAers get to know the land and each other as they begin building a village community.
