Description: This course offers a way to access the soul and spirit in all living beings, to discover another type of knowledge and encourage a more holistic worldview. Working with traditional shamanic practices, you will learn how to shift your consciousness and come directly into contact with different aspects of nature. You will also learn how to journey to the spirits and begin to understand the ways in which they communicate. In many shamanic societies, story is used as a bridge between the spirit world and the human world. Stories come to empower and guide us in times of change. Stories come into the world because we listen. During the course we will listen to the Earth and ask for stories to build earth awareness and new vision, stories of connection and creation. Storytelling can help us to translate the voice of the Earth into a language that humans can hear and receive. What does nature want to share with us now, and how can it help us to remember? This course is for anyone who feels touched by the spiritual, ecological and economic questions facing us today. It explores what it means to be an Earth Ambassador and how to bring this vision to your everyday life.

Josh Prigge will be discussing the company's commitment to zero waste, which began in 1990, the innovative waste reduction practices at Fetzer Vineyards, and how a comprehensive zero waste program has engaged and motivated employees. He will also touch on how the company has upheld this commitment to sustainability and, at the same time, found cost savings and increased revenue.

Description: Learn the basics of backyard beekeeping and do your part to support our hardworking pollinators! Beekeeping, otherwise known as apiculture, has been practiced for centuries all over the world. Today, the practice of caring for bees has remained relatively unchanged, but become safer and easier! Before you suit up, learn the basics. In this workshop(from 12 to 30PM), you will learn: - What equipment you need to begin - The life cycle of the honeybee - Where to place your hive - How to maintain your hive - Troubleshooting - Global bee population decline - Improving pollinator health - Resources and support Caring for bees requires as much effort as a garden and offers a variety of benefits to you and your garden. With local bee populations collapsing at an increasing rate, backyard beekeepers are needed now more than ever. Invite bees into your yard to help with pollination, an essential piece to the health of our local environment and global food supply. Pollination from bees supports one-third of global human crop growth, and honeybees account for 80% of that figure. Do your part to support these vital pollinators while cultivating an abundant garden, and enjoying sweet honey year round! Join us and learn how you can put nature's hardest workers to use. Tickets available on our website are $25 for members and $35 for non-members. The proceeds support our non-profit eco-educational programs.

Learn the basics of chicken husbandry and behavior, building and maintaining a healthy coop, breeding, disease and pest prevention, feeding, obtaining permits and more. Take home the resources you need to get started. Chicken make great pets, but what are the added benefits? It all comes down to two very natural and unavoidable things: food and waste. Chickens love to eat your vegetable or kitchen scraps, helping to reduce food waste and the size of our local landfill. Of course, what goes in must come out. Chickens provide fresh organic eggs and natural fertilizer for your garden in return. Get to know how you can care for these lovable fowl and watch food turn into waste - and waste back into food!

Description: Join us for a four day cob building workshop where art meets function. Create an elegant garden entrance and gate with us, using cob, stone and wood. Engage your senses. Arouse your creativity. Create a lasting impression. This workshop will teach you the basics of cob building. Cob is an ancient method now revised and improved upon with modern development. From design to construction, you will participate fully, while expressing yourself and your inner artist. Cob is a mixture of sand, straw and clay. This mix is made into loaves or lumps, which are then used to build walls. Cob is virtually free form and is akin to sculpting. By using this cheap, locally available, healthy and creative medium we can create garden walls, benches and even houses. Although house building is a more advanced skill, building small structures with cob is something that most everyone can do to add beauty and function to their landscape. Building with cob is fun, muddy, encourages community building and is an empowering process. People of all ages can participate.
