"A nation that destroys its soils destroys itself. Forests are the lungs of our land, purifying the air and giving fresh strength to our people." -Theodore Roosevelt
So many of the problems we face in the global landscape today came about by working against nature: global warming, soil degradation and erosion, loss of forests, pollution, expansion of deserts, decrease in food nutrition...just to name a few. Ironically, these challenges could not have come about without tremendous human and mechanical energy expended over time. Fortunately, the solutions require relatively small inputs of time and energy.
The programs and courses taught through The Institute teach participants how to incorporate whole foods and sustainable "good for you-good for the earth" practices into your lives. The classes and workshops include cooking clinics, gardening demonstrations, waste reduction workshops, Om Your Home clinics and more. We offer the tools and resources to support greener living through sustainable lifestyle and edible landscaping clinics and consultations and wellness retreats and outdoor exploration weekends.
Ask yourself these questions:
Do you get confused at the super-market by all the various labels?
Do you feel overwhelmed by all the environmental destruction that is occurring?
Are you concerned about the chemicals on your lawn, in your home...or even worse, on your food?
Do you want to learn how to grow your own food or support local farmers who do?
Do you want to include more home-made meals and less store-bought meals into your meal planning?
Would you like to support local, organic and sustainable land use practices and the humane treatment of animals, but you don't know where to begin?
Nature itself is the best physician [medicine]. ~ Hippocrates
