Tending the Wild / Caretaking
This class is my personal favorite. In this class you will start to learn why eco-systems collapse when indigenous peoples are removed from their land and how native people gathered from the land in such a way that animals, food and biodiversity were greatly increased in their ecosystems. Class will include some caretaking the land projects.
