Fall into learning with COTR courses

It’s August. Although we all prefer to live in denial, fall is fast approaching.

It’s August. Although we all prefer to live in denial, fall is fast approaching.

Inevitably, the days will get shorter, the air will turn crisp and back to school shopping will be underway. At College of the Rockies, fresh fall air is inspiration for fresh fall courses.

We are excited to have some solid local talent on board for fall, with Bill Swan (Greenman Sustainable Buildings) teaching Rot On!, a composting workshop, and Jer Donald (Syndicate Boardshop) hosting a Ski and Snowboard Tuning Clinic.

Lisa Jordan Krasnow (Anahata Foods) will be sharing her diverse knowledge, from Indian Philosophy to Vegan Cuisine and Gluten Free Sweets.

With such an artistic local community, we are able to offer some fantastic art courses, including the appropriately named Inspired Art workshop hosted by Pat Bavin (Bavin Glass Works).

Wanna get your hands dirty? In partnership with Groundswell, we have some new “down and dirty” workshops including Backyard Chickens for Families, Food Preservation by Canning and For the Love of Garlic. Interactive and fun for the whole family.

Fall course guides should arrive in your mailbox by the end of August.

In the meantime, visit cotr.bc.ca/coned and for a sneak peek.

We are already taking registrations for fall, so if you have your heart set on a course, call us today at 250-342-3210.
