Why Increase Your Footprint?

We are part of the web of life - it's time to reclaim that.

Why do we believe that our footprint on Earth is inherently bad or negative? Thousands of human cultures around the world live in a loving and caring relationship with plants, trees, animals and soil and so can we.

This course is about translating the care and love we feel for our Mother Earth into a care and love that is expressed through our hand and actions. Farmer Rishi will guide you to INCREASE YOUR FOOTPRINT of healing and regeneration on our Earth-body by restoring health to soil, water cycles, plants and ourselves.

Gardening from the ground up.

Learn to create a garden sanctuary in any space, small or large.

This unique 7-week course is designed to help guide you to develop caring & healing relationships with soil, plants, and animals.

We breathe Earth, we eat Earth, we sleep Earth.
We are Earth - it's time we all see that.

The purpose of this course is to educate and inspire everyone to create healing gardens with the power to regenerate land, bodies, minds, and spirits.

With Farmer Rishi's guidance, you will learn the fundamental ideas and practices necessary to participate in healing and regeneration at any scale and in any location- whether you are creating a garden on balcony, in a suburban home garden, or a public landscape.

Farmer Rishi will define and describe what regeneration means as a cultural concept, and demonstrate how that practice can be reflected tangibly in a garden setting and as part of your lifestyle.

What You'll Learn

No experience necessary. Long time gardeners welcome.

How would you garden if the world was living? How would you care for soil, rocks, plants, and animals if you believed them to be as conscious and creative as we are?

This #IncreaseYourFootprint Course is about a new (and very old) way of gardening. Whether you are a long-time gardener or never put your hands in the soil, this course has something for you. We will explore traditions of gardening based on the knowledge of indigenous people around the world, including:

• how to tend and care for soil so that she becomes rich enough to invigorate plants
• how to compost at home EASILY (and without smells & flies)
• how to have abundant plant growth with minimal water use
• how to harvest rainwater
• choosing and planting trees that will bring an abundance of fruit into your life
• caring for trees long-term
• designing a healing garden that is a sanctuary for you and your family
• creating an abundant and easily to maintain vegetable garden

and so much more!

It's time to flip the script: "Increase Your Footprint"

Reduce my footprint? How about increasing my footprint of care and love! Everyday, I work to nourish the living being that nourish me.  Every day I work to show soil that she is valuable and beautiful.  Every day I work to heal unbalanced energy cycles.  Everyday I increase my understanding and awareness in my role as a body of this Earth.
