A Worthy Profession
Lebensbaum desires to equip its students with the knowledge, techniques, and practice of German carpentry in order to form people who are capable to work with dignity and contribute to their community. Together with values like excellence and work ethic, Lebensbaum seeks to give the necessary formation so that its graduates can practice carpentry as a profession.
