My dad just sent me a video of Allegheny Mountain School where my brother is doing a fellowship. Sounds like a cool program and its amazing that the fellows are fully funded! Wow. Imagine getting paid to learn permaculture.....sounds like Cuba.
My brother started a local hot sauce business as part of the fellowship. Here is a quote that I love from his first blog post:
If I, Ian Sawyer, with no capital, with no business experience, with less than 6 months of living here,with very little time(I'm a farmer not an entrepreneur...), can start a business, SO CAN YOU!!His blog (only 4 posts total): http://mountainfeverventures.blogspot.sg

Yeah, lets fund more youth to become the producers of the future. Super important!!! Without them, we gotz no future.
