During The Understory, you will develop skills and understanding for long-term social and ecological regeneration: homesteading and handcraft skills to address how we live well in a place, academic inquiry to understand why we are here and how to move forward centering justice, and earth connection/mindfulness to stay grounded, joyful and resilient in the face of the work we are called to do. You will live and learn in a small, close-knit community at Maine Local Living School.
