With K-12 School Groups, 13 Universities/Colleges, corporate sponsors, and a wide variety of interdisciplinary educators – all walks of life are considered for training of how to live and learn into OUR collective future. Tours, Farm-stays, class trips (including longer term stays), celebrations, eco-conferencing — with accommodation services and break out rooms, industry and professional development, Green Burial, and much more.
