    The Rising Earth program takes 12 "changemakers" from ages 18 to 28 and encourages them to take a spiritual and holistic approach to social and environmental activism. In the program, the changemakers will learn about homesteading, self-care, leadership, and activism.

    The programs can range from 5 to 10 weeks and are offered year around. In each program, those accepted will learn about earth connection, inner connection, and people connection. This will come in the form of: tending the land, emotional literacy, conscious communication, life-path navigation, and more.
