Earth Activist Training this Summer at HearRoot Farm
Earth Activist Training
Permaculture Certification Course with Starhawk
at HeartRoot Farm, Quebec:
June 25-July 9, 2011
EAT: 2-week intensive residential, Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC) Course
This two-week residential intensive at Heartroot Farm offers a broad-brush overview of the regenerative design principles of permaculture. From inoculating mushrooms and digging swales to building with natural materials and sheet mulching the land, students have ample opportunity to experience these principles firsthand. Throughout the course, students work in
small groups to incorporate what they are learning into real-world permaculture design projects. The course culminates in the presentation of each group’s design project – which earns each student a Permaculture Design Certificate (required for any advanced course of study). This is Earth Activist Training, a rich array of solutions, tools, and strategies to redesign our world. Immerse yourself in this richness through classroom theory, hands-on practice, inner experience, and community. Don’t forget that it’s a lot of fun, too. Many find it life changing.
HeartRoot is located on 240 acres of spruce and maple forest at the top of the White and Appalachian mountain ranges on the border of Maine in Quebec. Their website can be found at www.heartroot.com.

Recently I wrote a blog entry offering a leftist critique of the ideology of “Green” environmentalism, permaculturalism, deep ecology, eco-feminism, and lifestyle politics in general (veganism, “dumpster diving,” “buying organic,” “locavorism,” etc.). I’d be interested to hear your thoughts on the matter and any responses you might have to its criticisms.
