This forest walk is part of our local effort to raise awareness about sustainable practices for living in harmony with the Earth and an indigenous vision for our sustainable future.
In addition to the forest walk on September 6, we are organizing a worm composting workshop with Seattle Tilth on October 4, and we will host a Tseltal Maya ritual to honor the Earth at Casa Latina on October 5. At both these October events, our special guests from Chiapas will be present.
