Mary and I, in response to the myriad of questions we receive about porches and as self-appointed Porch Professors, created Porchology 101.

Unlike other classes, ours is free and you don't have to register, pay for books, arrive on time, or take notes. There are no tests so you don't have to study either!

We hope you enjoy our short informational videos and invite you to begin by watching our introductory video below.
