For those of you who aren’t familiar, the Saxifrage School
is a not-for-profit higher education laboratory working to lower costs, rebuild neighborhoods, and reconcile disciplines. They are based in the Garfield/East Liberty/Larimer corridor and have been offering a host of lectures and courses around the city over the last two years. Dedicated to creating community partnerships their current curriculum is focused on offering low-cost 12-week courses based in the theory and practice of organic agriculture, carpentry, web development, and graphic design. As they grow their programs, they are working towards becoming a full-fledged 500-person college that extends the liberal arts to include technical crafts.Interested in learning web development?
