Happy Spring Equinox

Dear Sun, may you feast upon the riotous beauty of this experimental earth lab. I made this mandala/living altar as the sun rose on the spring equinox…and then it hid for the rest of the day. May we remember to celebrate the earth, the cycles, and our glorious sacred selves. Can you name the 4 edible plants in this photo, the 5th is also used in flavoring froth of cacao?

I don’t know if you’ve heard, but recycling isn’t going to cut it. Paradigm shifting new ways of existing in our day to day reality are needed to adapt to the coming changes.

Join Sunny Savage in a Wild Weekend of culture creation, a gathering of the tribes to practice earth-based skills utilizing resources found in abundance in our bioregion.

Free Zipline Tour for Foraging

Some people just go zipping by, but we’ll be on the ground at Skyline EcoAdventures foraging for haole koa (Leucaena leucocephala). Because we will be traveling via 4×4 to a remote part of the property, we only have spots for 13 people! Please sign-up by emailing me at sunnysavage[@]gmail.com to confirm your spot. This is such an exciting project, as we will be clearing the haole koa with assistance from Joseph Imhoff, native plant extraordinaire, to release its stranglehold on native plants. Join us for this unique adventure, and Joe has even included a free zipline voucher (to be used at a later date) for all those participating!!!

JANUARY 28th

9:30 – 3:30    (you’ll receive meeting location once you RSVP)

Please bring your own water bottle, wear long pants and sturdy shoes, sunglasses, sunscreen and/or hat, and work gloves if you have them. Anyone under 18 should have a guardian with them, and we will all sign a liability release form.

Come enjoy the sun, good people, and learn about and participate in our dynamic ecosystems.
