We are feeling inspired by this amazing documentary. Our current education system has a tendency to focus on a "one size fits all" education paradigm. This is a refreshing and inspiring alternative that goes beyond our current shop class offerings at school. It shows the challenges, frustrations and motivation of a group of students learning how to design, build and make their community a better place.
Why is this important to us? We want our community, our employees, our clients, and our admirers to feel a sense of pride in our homes and buildings. To do this, we need a different kind of education for those who are interested. A new vision where we educate, nurture and mentor future craftspeople...teach them the art of the craft so that we have beautiful, well built, well designed dwellings. We begin by planting the seeds.
