Upcoming Workshops

Individual, Household and Community Resilience are built one step at a time: from learning to grow some of the herbs and vegetables your family consumes to learning how to preserve and make your own food from scratch, those are all small acts of love and true resilience: sometimes we don’t have the time, energy, support or even motivation to make “big things” happening around us…but it is the small things such as making your own cheese or yogurt, starting seeds, growing your Rosemary and learning how to use it to heal and relax that you build the foundations of a more resilient and sustainable world.

For those of you who may be interested in learning more about growing food, Permaculture, food preservation and food sovereignty, here are some of the workshops still to come:

  1. Even reading this post makes me feel more resilient, Silvia, though I know it’s the doing (along with the being) that brings in the sustainable part. Your posts, your workshops, your stories – they all bring me such hope for the world – knowing of someone as yourself, who cares, gives & does by sharing and mentoring this journey with others. Thank you kindly, Silvia.


    • Thank you so much Bruce! I’m myself am going through a burnout period right now and had withdrawn from a few things, need to take care of myself and my family, slow down a bit and take inventory to see what’s my priority for next step. I feel a bit discouraged these days and really tired, not able to engage as much as I was in the past…
