Movement Generation’s Earth Skills training track is a series of interactive, land-based workshops. They are designed to help us restore and manage our relationship to our own work and to the resources that meet our basic needs. We see this as a critical part of building resilience in marginalized communities. Organizers, community members and all participants will gain practical skills that both help communities weather the impacts of the ecological crises, lighten our collective footprint on the planet, and practice managing our resources without government or corporate oversight so that we can ensure equity. We aim to cultivate these skills in organized communities that want to build power by creating community controlled economies.

Past Earth Skills trainings include:

  • Urban Composting & Soil Preparation
  • Rooftop Gardens & Working with Medicinal Plants and Herbs
  • Rainwater Harvesting – Installing Rainwater Catchment Systems
  • Direct Action Resilience
  • Restoring Health, Childbirth, & Independence from Industrial Medicine
