BRIT Classes and Workshops

 

As a community leader in plant based knowledge and education, BRIT is pleased to partner with experts in the fields of botany, biodiversity, conservation, sustainability and education to provide the public with opportunities to deepen their knowledge of the plant world through a variety of classes and workshops. 
 
These half and full day classes and workshops, some of which will offer CEUs and CECs, will take place both on the BRIT campus, 1700 University Drive, Fort Worth, TX  76107, and in the field. Please check the individual event announcements for further details.
 

Upcoming Classes:

Permaculture 101

Our Spring series of permaculture classes was so well recieved that we're offering an encore series of classes this fall!

Join BRIT for these hands-on workshops taught by Kim Martin and Laurie Bostic of Barking Cat Farm, a small acreage specialty farm that focuses on growing high quality crops in an organic and sustainable manner. Martin and Bostic have their Permaculture Design Certificate from Geoff Lawton’s Permaculture Design Course and offer permaculture design and consulting services to other growers and gardeners.
