Permaculture & Earth Activist Training in May

Wow! I got this notice from Starhawk last night. If you've ever thought about getting training in Permaculture, this 2-week course looks phenomenal! I think I'll start saving my pennies.

Earth Activist Training

Radical Sustainability and Regenerative Activism

So much more than a permaculture design certification course, Earth Activist Training (EAT) weaves the principles of permaculture, earth-based spirituality, and regenerative activism into a captivating curriculum that blends classroom lecture and experiential exercises with practical, hands-on learning opportunities.
