Village Deep Dives

DIY and Grassroots Education based in Lived Experience

Village Deep Dives are live five-week online workshops that offer in-depth explorations into topics connected to health and wealth from the wellspring of our village.

You will journey with experienced ecovillagers, who offer the opportunity to build crucial skills and deepen into more complex understandings that are essential for community living and village building.

Build a skill set, get to know the village instructors, dive into a topic in depth. You’ll come away with a tangible understanding of the topic as well as tools to work on your own project, for your own life, with concrete movement to go in the direction you desire.
