Regenerative Agriculture

A Return to Sane, Healthy, and Local Food Systems

Saturday, August 7, 4 – 6 pm Eastern Time
Saturday, December 11, 4 – 6 pm Eastern Time

Online

The problems created by industrial agriculture are many fold and ever increasing. “Big Ag” is a major contributor to environmental disasters, worsening health and hunger outcomes, inequality, and the significant loss of local systems. Yet through increased awareness, education, and simple practices each of us can contribute to elegant, life-enhancing, and culture-changing solutions.

We will explore industrial vs. sustainable food system models, principles of ecologically based agriculture techniques, current farming buzzwords (resilient, organic, sustainable, etc.), and tips for a more regenerative food future. In addition, discover how Earthaven Ecovillage is implementing some of these systems on a micro level including creative approaches to annual and perennial plants, chickens, pasture systems, ruminants, orchards, pollinators, as well as wild plants and medicines.

Scholarships

We offer partial scholarships to black, indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) who otherwise would not be able to afford to attend. We understand that BIPOC experience more financial and institutional barriers to participation, and this is one way we are able to create more access. If you identify as BIPOC and would like to receive a scholarship, please contact us at info@schoolofintegratedliving.org.
