There are many ways that you can get involved and support our efforts.

EAT is thankful for our passionate Earth Activist network. We would not have been able to transition online and continue the work we do without the hard work of our dedicated community!

How You Can Help 

EAT’s Diversity Scholarship Fund for Indigenous peoples and People of color working in environmental justice nurtures community leaders who can help us find new ways to grow food and grow the healthy social relations we need to transform our human ecosystems.  But we need your help to continue. 

Make a donation! Or better yet, make a monthly donation! Can you pledge $10 a month, the price of a couple of lattes, to help support out work? Our monthly donors enable us plan ahead, prioritize, and help sustain the ongoing vital work of our organization.

Building hope in the face of climate crisis – a message from starhawk

Climate crisis!

“The latest UN Report says we have only ten years to turn it around! When you hear that, do you get a sinking feeling in the pit of your stomach? Do you feel overwhelmed and hopeless? Yeah—me too, sometimes. And yet I know there is so much that we can do!

Climate change—it’s not just carbon numbers, it’s massive ecosystem degradation on a global scale.  But here’s the good news—we know how to regenerate ecosystems on a large scale! That’s what we teach in our Earth Activist Trainings, that combine permaculture design with a grounding in spirit and a focus on organizing and activism!

Our trainings change lives, and open up new career paths.”

Our trainings change lives and open new career paths

Malik Coburn

“Before the privilege of attending my first EAT course in March 2017, I had been trapped in the hole of working job-to-job. In June 2017, I took the Permaculture Design Course with Starhawk and Charles Williams. I am currently facilitating a project based environmental science curriculum in Gary, IN – a town that sits in the shadows of Chicago, IL as a poverty-ridden, violent, and food deserted area. The course helped me in how it provided me with so many resources, with the tools to create partnerships and therapeutic methods to bring beauty to ourselves and our surroundings.”

Becky Ellis

Earth Activist Training completely changed my world. It brought together three strands in my life that had not been connected too closely until my experience at the PDC: Earth-based spirituality, the growing of food, and activism. I have been inspired to live my life in vastly different ways since attending the PDC in 2010. I have created a children’s gardening program, done permaculture education, built an amazing community of permaculture-ended people, created an arts and eco festival and taken a leadership role in pushing for regenerative urban agriculture in my city of London (Ontario) and Toronto.”

“I put out the blog and podcast The Re-Enchantment (formerly Permaculture for the People) which focuses on anti/post capitalism and permaculture. I am completing my PhD in Geography at Western University and my research focuses on the relationship between people and urban bees.  Through EAT I learned that, to paraphrase Arundhati Roy, another world is not only possible but is on her way!”


Earth Activist Training is looking for Mentors for our Regenerative Land Management diploma program.

Mentors will work with one or more students to help guide them through the program, plan their goals, find internships and apprenticeships and document their learning.


Permaculture Design Certificate (equivalent experience may qualify).

Experience in one or more areas of our regenerative land management curriculum (check it out here). For example, running a grazing program, managing a rural or urban farm, nursery, or ecological design consultancy, expertise in  forest management, etc.

Good people skills, a desire to mentor and support students a must.

To apply

Read the full description of our program. Then fill out a mentorship registration.

First round application is a pretty simple inquiry —we’re looking for short answers on each.
