  • Regenerative design, permaculture, and edible forest gardening
  • Nonviolent, compassionate communication as a component of environmental progress
  • Good bugs, bad bugs, and bees

Please let me know soon if you would like to contribute your expertise on any of these topics, how you would like to modify the subject, or if you have another proposal. Details about the day will be updated on A-Frog-House.com., our website.
