    •  forest ecology and managing our forests for biodiversity, resilience, and reciprocity
    • value-added products from regenerative forest management such as production of biochar, round pole building materials, and other artisanal crafts
    • fire behavior, working with prescribed fire, fire mimicry
    • home-hardening to make our homes more fire-resilient 
    • grazing for fuel reduction and fiber production 
    • supporting the land’s recovery after fire
  • You’ll learn carbon-sequestering strategies for soil, water management, forestry and food growing.
  • As well, you’ll gain experience in community organizing, design, planning, project management and team leadership.

The ten-day course includes one week of instruction at New Paradigm College in Lucerne, Lake County, CA that culminates in a weekend restoration eco-blitz on a community project that will engage the larger community.  It ends with a final day of cleanup, evaluation, and celebration. Since 2015, 80% of Lake County has burned in California’s devastating wildfires.  Lake County has below-average income and above-average unemployment—but it also has a strong, committed community who love their land and are determined to make it a model of resilient adaptation to the new climate realities.  By partnering with many community organizations there, Earth Activist Training hopes to create a model of training and action that can provide on-the-ground, practical help and mitigation, education and inspiration.
