In this output packet I describe the events that took place from July 23rd to August 12th 2012 during an environmental education course at Quail Springs Permaculture. I acted as a photographer and as a youth mentor during the 3 week course. We lived on site, camping in tents under the stars. International educators came to teach us about rainwater harvesting and composting toilets. The students received a permaculture design certification upon completion. I truly had an amazing experience and grew as an individual, counselor and photographer during my time at Quail Springs.
