We are very excited to work with and to have the help of the following people and organizations.



Kindle Cascadia is a bioregional community dedicated to integrating traditional and ancestral life ways into the present cycles of our lives.  Gathering together with our diverse backgrounds and gifts, we reweave the fabric of our village in mutual commitment to the holy, the wild, and the emergent.

This is a super-fun primitive skill share and Solstice ritual. It's a great place to learn and share skills, and to meet other people who are interested in radical nature-based cultural change.



Located in Eugene, Oregon, Whole Earth Nature School was founded with the vision of helping people rediscover their connection to the natural world. We believe that humanity is naturally part of the community of living things and that we can be a positive force on the planet. We strive to foster a personal connection between people and their environment and so we focus on helping people get to know the land that they live on and receive sustenance from. We are all dependent on the Earth.


Nature's Mystery Awareness School

Through our nature programs we will explore history, ecology, and native lore, as we deepen our nature awareness skills and uncover treasure all around.  Our curriculum is specifically designed for Eugene area families interested in alternative educational models as applied to outdoor exploration.  Current nature immersion programs are inspired by the stories of Tom Brown and Jon Young, the teachings of Rudolf Steiner, and Indigenous wisdom from around the world.


Aprovecho Education Center

Aprovecho teaches an impressive array of resilient, earth-valuing skills. They offer long-term residential programs in permaculture, natural building, and appropriate technology, as well as weekend workshops in a wide variety of eco-trade and sustainable living skills. Highly recommended.

Rob will be teaching classes with them in the Fall and Winter of 2017/18 on the following subjects (click bold names to go to the Aprovecho course description): wild harvesting mushrooms, willow basketry, and friction fire.



“Empowered by love, we transform ourselves and serve our world” is the mission of the Unitarian Universalist Church.

The Coming of Age program at the UU Church in Eugene is co-sponsoring our presentation by Dr. Arne Rubinstein. We are thankful for the church's role in our community, including offering space rental for good causes.


Next Step Recycling

NextStep Recycling granted us a computer, monitor, printer and other peripherals to get our office set up. We are very thankful for their generosity, and for their mission of encouraging recycling and reuse of electronics-- and thereby the reduction of e-waste-- in Eugene and Springfield.

Thank you to Next Step, for helping us with our technical needs!
