Cost and Logistics
The entire course will take place on the campus of Warren Wilson College. There will be a good bit of walking involved, with daily trips between classroom, dorm, and cafeteria, as well as some walking with the afternoon permaculture workshop. If you have limited mobility issues, please contact Fred Bahnson directly to discuss.
The Commuter rate only includes lunches and Thursday’s dinner. The Double and Single Room rates include all meals except Wednesday night. Meals take place in the Warren Wilson Cafeteria, which sources some of its food from the Warren Wilson College gardens and farm.
Lodging will be dorm rooms on the Warren Wilson campus. The dorms are comfortable, clean, and simple. We have single and double rooms available. Your dorm room will share a bathroom with three other rooms. If you require your own private bathroom, or you’d like something a bit more upscale than a dorm room, you are welcome to reserve a room at a nearby hotel and chose the commuter rate.
The nearest airport is Asheville (AVL), located roughly a half-hour from Warren Wilson College campus. In terms of getting to Warren Wilson College from the airport, there are multiple taxi and shuttle services you can chose from, starting at around $20/person one way. In the past, participants have had good success with Grandy Transportation (828.691.0504). If you’re driving, there will be free parking on campus during your stay.
