We’ve rolled out a new program of short classes, coming straight from our non-profit mission of personal, social, and ecological sustainability. These are weekly workshops lead by resident staff on site – this is a chance for them to hone their teaching skill and for attendees to gain information & inspiration. Each workshop is independent of the others, so you can participate in one without the need to enroll in a series of them or feel guilty about cherry-picking. Topics vary — as the elements of sustainable living do — from non-violent communication to edible native plants to sound healing. This spotlights the many skills and areas of expertise amongst resident staff here.
The time and place are consistent, for easy remembering – most Wednesday evenings, 7:00-8:30pm in the Large Classroom.
Taking a cue from alternative economics, the cost is modest and cooperative – these sessions are entirely by donation – contribute what you can, and what you think it’s worth.
Participants come from the onsite community, Eugene, or elsewhere nearby. You can choose to come an hour early for community dinner in the Lodge – it is $11 for the homemade, organic, vegetarian buffet, and provides a chance to chat with those who live and/or study onsite.
A new Sustainable Living Workshops flyer is produced each month, and is pasted below. November 2016 was the first month of this year-round program. To inquire or RSVP (which is helpful but not required), the contact is firstname.lastname@example.org or 541-937-3351 x202. See you here soon!
