When people, land, and community are as one, all three members prosper; when they relate not as members but as competing interests, all three are exploited. By consulting Nature as the source and measure of that membership, The Land Institute seeks to develop an agriculture that will save soil from being lost or poisoned, while promoting a community life at once prosperous and enduring.
Agriculture transforms not only plants and soils, but human communities as well. How we feed ourselves shapes our society. In turn, our choices and knowledge will help determine whether we can achieve sustainable food systems and communities going forward. It can be hard to know how to act skillfully in this time of uncertainty and change, or even to know where to begin. This workshop invites you to The Land Institute to learn about our long-term efforts to create a perennial grain agriculture and to practice perennial habits of mind and community life. Grounded in shared experiences of place, we will investigate these new perspectives and tools to help make pathways toward a good future in our common home. The workshop will be led by The Land Institute’s Director of Ecosphere Studies, Aubrey Streit Krug, and is designed for everyone interested in food, teaching and learning, and community building. Join us for a weekend of renewal in the beauty of the Smoky Hill River watershed.
The workshop leads participants on a cohesive journey, so registration is intended for those who can attend the entire event. The workshop is free of charge; snacks and lunch are provided for participants. If you have questions or would like more information, contact us at 785-823-5376 or .
