My name is Lukas and I am currently an organic farming intern in Urbana, IL. I have not participated in any aspect of the Occupy movement yet; however I am very excited to stand with you in future (after initial internship is finished). Basically, I'm curious of the stance that Occupy takes on establishing a trade/artisan based educational system for the new world it wishes to create. My farm manager has told me about the Zapatista movement, the anarchism they stand for and their practical farming practices (the land belongs to those who work it). It has gotten me thinking..
My question to you is...
Does and/or will Occupy take strides toward encouraging young people to learn sustainable farming practices along with other artisan crafts like metal working, carpentry and irrigation?
If this is currently not a major priority; It should be.
In order to truly break away from the oppression of the 1% we need to become sustainable amongst ourselves, teaching everyone, even those in search white collar careers the basic skills in order to survive by oneself.
I am very excited to finnish my internship and assist in teaching kids, people my own age and older sustainable farming practices. It would be a great honor to set up/take part in an Occupy based sustainable farming teaching program.
Thank you for reading,
Your one day ally on the front lines,

Trade schools are institutions, which provides technical knowledge to students on specific fields and the students get a chance to increase on their scope of attaining the innermost details of their subjects of study and also widen their scope of professionalism.
