Indigenous Wisdom & Permaculture Skills Convergence
August 26 - September 3$200
One of our most recent grantees is calling all builders, healers, and community change makers. Join them to co-create ecological infrastructure at the Indigenous Wisdom & Permaculture Skills Convergence on the Oglala Lakota Pine Ridge reservation, South Dakota, August 26th – September 3rd 2018.
We combine hands-on experiential learning with ongoing projects that are initiated and maintained by Lakota community groups. This year, we’re supporting the build of the Indigenous Wisdom Center, a Lakota language school and permaculture demonstration site, where attendees have the opportunity to learn natural building, aquaponics design, and how to set up other important ecologically-minded systems.
We’ll also combine forces with Rebel Earth Farms, where attendees will learn greenhouse and permaculture garden design to establish the beginning of a food security network to serve the entire Pine Ridge community.
