Regenerative Seeds: For an Eco-Culture

What is Human’s place in nature? How do we heal the ruptured relationship between humans and nature. This program will be part informative, part experiential, and partly an open lab of ideas and experiments.

Building eco-literacy, and practicing Core Routines of nature observation together, we’ll begin an ongoing journey for the individual and as a community. Then, through field trips and presentations and discussions we’ll look at some of the grassroots movements that are creating solutions, such as Permaculture, Regenerative Design and Culture Repair. Then we’ll look to practice our new Design tools as a group, and implement some of them here at the Abode.

$10 to $20 suggested donation per day. Fridays through November 23. We’ll be meeting in the family room in Fattah at 9:30 am. Feel free to email with any further questions: [email protected]

Hope to see you,
Kevin
