Sustainable Infrastructure

Managing land ecologically is a resource-intense activity that requires finding a balance between consumption, ecological impact, and financial solvency. We will look at balancing these often complex and sometimes competing needs. This class focuses on small-scale energy systems, material choices, and waste management. We will explore how to design, maintain and manage energy systems, integrate cyclic waste management strategies, and evaluate and find low-impact materials for landed projects. This class will provide the technical know-how you didn’t know you needed.

Empowering Collaborative Groups

We will need to do the hard, long-term work of making systemic change. Online or in person, the work of change and transformation must be done with other people–those annoying beings who do not always agree with us, and want their own way! Collaborative groups may be healing, nurturing, and inspirational—or they may flounder on the rocks of conflict and poor communication. But when we understand their patterns and challenges, we can design structures that favor supportive, nurturing relationships. In this six-week online course, Starhawk guides us through her book, The Empowerment Manual: A Guide for Collaborative Groups.

Permaculture Design Course

Permaculture is ethics based design that applies principles to address challenges between people and the environment. As we know, challenges abound. In the next few decades we will need to reskill more of the population faster than ever before in human history. Much of what permaculture has to offer is part of that reskilling. We can design human habitats that are resilient, redundant and that provide for our needs. Our course follows the curriculum by the Permaculture Institute of North America. Permaculture design certification requires 72 hours minimum of student participation time and concludes with students receiving an internationally recognized certificate. This course is heavy on the ethics, principles and design aspects of permaculture. We cover many techniques that are useful in design. Students learn about whole systems and how to design a real existing site, working together in teams through the course and presenting their design on the second to last weekend. The certificate does NOT mean that you are certified to teach a PDC or that you have all the tools and skills to be a professional Permaculture designer. The permaculture design course is the foundation; students still need to build the walls, roof, openings, finish, and landscape. We have tools to help with this. If you have an interest in learning more about permaculture, about whole systems or about how to work within the limits of nature this course may be for you! We are beginning March 8th and will finish September 22nd. Register!

Kindling Wisdom _ A Social Permaculture Convergence

Join us for a community weekend of rekindling embodied, nature-based, relational wisdom. In the face of the many ongoing tragedies caused by the unraveling of our political and economic systems, we must still hold the torch for a resilient future. We believe that cultural revival, deep solidarity, and embodied wisdom are essential foundations for our path forward. Kindling Wisdom is a spark for re-culturing our relationships with ourselves, each other, and the land. Gather with us to re-connect what has been disconnected, to mend what has been torn, and to mourn what has been lost. Together we will weave a rich tapestry of song, story, solidarity, somatic awareness, historical reflection, and earth-based wisdom, as we co-create a future that is resilient, regenerative, and rooted in collective remembrance. CORE THEMES Song + story Community + re-villaging Decolonizing permaculture Land-tending + place-making Communication + conflict skillbuilding Embodiment + nervous system education Examining capitalism + identity-based heirarchies GET TICKETS!
