Living Earth Center seeks a sustainable future for all through education, advocacy, and collaboration among all spiritual traditions and diverse cultures.


Sharing Common Ground

Like a healthy eco-system, we believe that everyone has something important and valuable to offer to our local and greater Earth community. We believe in bringing people with different backgrounds and strengths together to share common ground over food, learning and story-telling. We invite you to join us in celebrating nature's abundance and honoring our shared resilience and responsibility in the interconnection of everything.

Featured essayists include Thich Nhat Hahn, Wendell Berry, Vandana Shiva, and Winona LaDuke.
