Education is a key tool in supporting a greener future. Yet,
sometimes as adults we fail to stop, pause, and engage in meaningful
experiences that help us dive deeper and expand our current knowledge base.
This is where the EarthWays Green Living class offerings can help supports you
in discovery, sharing, and exploring the curiosities around our planet. Ranging
in topics from basic understanding of waste and recycling to hands-on workshops
in creative reuse and greener cleaning methods to field experiences to organic
farm schools and local recycling sites – these classes cover it all! We’ve got
chickens, bikes, and more – but we need you!
So join us this spring and summer at an upcoming class.
You’ll enjoy discovering new connections to living a greener life, resource
conservation, and have fun while learning. We are excited to welcome regional
experts in sustainability to our program this spring including Green Dining
Alliance, VeloFix St. Louis, EarthDance Organic Farm School, the Easy Chicken,
Perennial, Traveling Tea, and many more. Through these unique class offerings
and partnerships, EarthWays Center is able to share key concepts in
sustainability with participants from all over the St. Louis region. From
energy to water to compost to reuse and more we’ve got something for everyone
The Spring/Summer 2018 Green Living class registrations are now available– and we’ve got a special sneak peak of
