What practices help to deepen our connection to the natural world? How does connection to the ecologies we inhabit impact our sense of responsibility to those places? How can the practices of permaculture and ecological agriculture help us interact with places in ways that reflect our responsibility? This workshop will explore how we can draw our attention to the many influences of our living bio-system as a practice of embodied interrelationship with the natural world. We will inquire into what responsible ecological participation can look like as farmers, ranchers, gardeners, and tenders of place.
