Badger Events & Ecology Center Workshops

Badger Ecology Center

Health and well-being depends upon a good relationship with both people and our planet. The Badger Ecology Center strives promotes this in these ways:

  • We offer educational workshops to the local community focused on various homesteading arts, wellness topics, and creative & sustainable business practices.
  • We produce food for Badger employee lunches in our biodynamic vegetable & herb gardens
  • We oversee a meditation labyrinth and flower garden for employees and public to enjoy

This is our way of caring for the Earth while giving back to our local community.

Are you worried about the lasting effects of single use plastic products, but feel powerless to do anything to stop it? Join us for a workshop focused on moving toward a plastic-free lifestyle. Topics covered will include tips on how to identify and eliminate single use plastic, reduce the excess plastic in your life, strategies for shopping to avoid plastic, and how to make do-it-yourself cleaning supplies. Participants will each bring home a reusable container of home-made cleaning solution.

Presenter Bios:

Tal Gregory has been working on various ways to reduce his plastic use ever since he realized that history, in the tradition of using one word to designate a historical period (Stone Age, Bronze Age), will look back on our time as the Plastic Age. The sooner the plastic age ends, the happier he will be.

Jess Baum, Sustainability Manager at Badger, is passionate about finding hopeful, healing, engaging solutions to climate change, and the paradox of living as a caring being in a complex world.
