  • Reading group: Marx's Capital Illustrated

    As radicals, we all need to be analyzing capitalism and how best to fight it—but do you really have the time to read a book like Capital?  Now you do!  The recently reissued Marx's Capital Illustrated puts this revolutionary classic into an accessible and entertaining form.  Please join us for a lively discussion of this working-class economic theory and its relevance to the crises and struggles of today.

  • Digging Beyond the Surface to Create Mutually Beneficial Relationships

    This course will introduce students to the proper techniques necessary in order to build mutually beneficial relationships, both personally and professionally. 

  • Possibilities for Urban Permaculture--And Why It Matters

    This initial course will focus on the basic principles of permaculture, and explain how they can be applied to urban environments, including using plants to help keep indoor air cleaner, and the use of green walls to reduce heating and cooling costs.  It will also discuss how permaculture could be used in urban environments to help resolve the issue of disrupted food supplies in an emergency situation.  I envision the class as a twenty to thirty minute talk, followed by questions and hands-on projects or brainstorming.  Ideally, participants would gather in smaller groups and share ideas based on their living situation, then come back to the larger group and summarize their discussions.  I would prefer a Saturday class time, during the afternoons, sometime between mid-October and mid-December.
