"Earthwise" because my dream is for people to become more Earth Wise...wise about the Earth, to live consciously and in partnership with nature, and to learn the old ways, the ways of self-sufficiency, to re-member that we are all connected, to deepen our connection to the Earth and All Our Relations.
Earthwise Learning Center is a sacred space where we gather to learn, grow, and re-member, and celebrate the Plants, the Trees, the Animals, the Earth, so that we can pass along the Earth Wisdom to our children and grandchildren in hope that one day all people will be and live Earthwise. ~ Robin McGee
