"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has." Margaret Mead
This daylong workshop will combine informational sessions, group discussion and hands-on workshops led by members of Enright Ridge Urban Eco-village and Heartland Ecovillage, two local groups working to create a sustainable, socially equitable way of life, one in the city and one at the edge of Grailville.
Topics will include:
- The principles of ecovillages and how they might apply to your current or envisioned community.
- How a “sense of place” bioregional is part of a whole living system, not just our home or neighborhood, but the broader community with which we interact.
- Ways to help our neighborhoods move beyond individualism toward community resilience, including (topics subject to change) :
Sustainable local food options
- Living ecologically
- Backyard chickens
- Bringing the eco-village principles into your and your children’s lives
The cost is $65, including lunch. Reservation with nonrefundable deposit is required.
Limited scholarships may be available. 5% discount for multiple pre-paid registrations for this workshop
or this workshop in combination with other Grailville programs. For information or to register contact 513-683-2340 or click here.
