Starhawk & Charles Williams
This two-week Earth Activist Training (EAT) program can set your life on a new path, help you transform your neighborhood, and show you how to save the planet.
Green solutions may be sprouting up all around us, but permaculture is the key to weaving these disparate strands into unified systems. Earth Activist Training teaches permaculture-based, practical Earth-healing with just a touch of magic. Through ritual and nature awareness, lots of hands-on practice, and plenty of time to laugh, your two weeks at EAT will also teach you to integrate mind and heart. All permaculture seeks to meet human needs as it regenerates the land. The additional EAT goals are simple, profound, and eminently achievable: Bring on the vegetables! Bring sustainable ecological design to communities where the need is greatest and resources are few. Involve social change activists and visionaries, and especially neighborhood residents. Through cross-pollination of political, environmental, and spiritual movements, double the resources for all seekers of peace, justice, and social resilience. Given the means to care for themselves, communities flower like gardens. Join Starhawk and Charles for two weeks that will change your life and transform the lives of those around you.
This program includes the basic, internationally recognized, 72-hour curriculum required for a Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC), with additional focus on social permaculture, organizing tools, and spirit.
