From the organizers:
Highlights Include: Visits to regenerative farms, eco-forestry projects, a transformative women’s empowerment social enterprise, a community land trust. Homestays with local families. Meet changemakers in an Appalachian coal mining community. Visit and stay at the historic Highlander Folk School!
The Regenerative Tennessee program focuses on the important ways that people are rebuilding lives, communities and the land in Tennessee. For the Rē School, regeneration is a holistic process that includes people, towns and the environment. Across Tennessee there are fantastic innovators, visionaries and doers on the ground moving the region into a regenerative world of increasing abundance for people and planet.
The program will start in Nashville and take participants from middle Tennessee to the mountains of east Tennessee and Kentucky, looking at a variety of agricultural, educational and social programs that are making Tennessee and the wider world a better place to live. Please join them for an exciting and hopeful journey into what a restorative future looks like.
