Earth Activist Training (EAT) teaches permaculture design with a grounding in spirit and a focus on organizing and activism, linking those who are creating positive alternatives for the future with those who are actively working for political change. Learn how to heal soil and cleanse water, how to design human systems that mimic natural systems using a minimum of energy and resources, and how to create real abundance and social justice. Permaculture has many tools to address the problems of climate change and environmental degradation, and this course focuses on solutions and positive approaches to the grave problems which confront us today Register by June 1st for early bird special (save $200 on registration cost!).
