SO WHAT WILL E(ART)H CLUB MEMBERS DO?

Learn: E(ART)H Club members will come together to observe natural ecosystems, better understand our place within them, discover how different communities have come together to create a more sustainable world, and learn valuable technical skills that can be applied in the green economy or at home.

Design: At E(ART)H Club we’re putting the art in earth-based connection. Using permaculture as our guide, Club members will design their own visions for sustainable land use that fosters community connection. Club members will have access to teachers, art supplies, and outdoor spaces to inspire their creativity. All projects are self-directed, so Club members can take their visions in any direction they dream of!

Create: Drawing on the resources of the Prattsville Art Center, Mossy Stone Farms, and local public green spaces, E(ART)H Club members will be empowered to make their visions reality. We will work to beautify our local communities and homes, using skills ranging from natural building, to creating beautiful and unique gardens and food forests, to hosting community events and public art projects.
