Earth Activist Training for Children! | Cazadero, CA

January 6 - January 12

$695 - $995

Imagine our children experiencing the beautiful culture of permaculture, earth based spirituality and activism at the Earth Activist Training (EAT)!

 Please join us to pilot a children’s EAT path for 7 children ages 6-9 with parent support that weaves in and out of the Earth Activist Training. Days will include morning circle with Charles, Starhawk, Pandora and the EAT group (where we make spiritual connection with air, fire, water and earth), followed by nature connection activities on our own.
In the afternoons we will sometimes join the EAT group for hands on permaculture activities and sometimes do our own or take time off with our children. Evenings may include slide shows and ritual with the EAT group, a fire, cooperative games and a movie on our own.


We will offer three meals a day, and we will enjoy Carin McKay’s amazing cooking with the EAT students and teachers.

Together we will explore:

  • Spiritual connection
  • Nature connection
  • Games
  • Permaculture principles and ethics
  • Senses
  • Patterns in nature, observing patterns and details
  • Web of life and food chains
