Join Starhawk and master permaculture designer Erik Ohlsen for a long weekend intensive on water. We’ll share hands-on practices for stream restoration and erosion control, held in a framework that honors water as the sacred, life-giving force it is. Together we’ll learn to read the rhythm and pulse of flowing water, acquire a palette of tools for healing disturbed and incised streambeds and hillside erosion, and build small rock dams, brush dams, and beaver-dam analogs while doing fuel reduction and fire mitigation in the woods. You’ll get a tour of the water systems, storage, ponds, roof catchment and drip irrigation on our host site. We’ll start each day with ritual, work and play together throughout the day with time for just being in a beautiful natural setting, and share stories, songs and water ceremonies in the evenings.
