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.

Participants will learn how to design and create a labyrinth at home for meditation, renewal, and direction. Through experiencing a 7-circuit classical labyrinth, creating a temporary, full-size labyrinth (easily replicated at home in an afternoon), exploring different labyrinth forms, and learning hands-on skills for designing your own labyrinth, participants will leave this three hour workshop empowered and inspired to bring this sacred, accessible tool into their daily lives.

Katie Schwerin, a local artist, recently received her MFA from Goddard College, and is co-owner and COO of the W.S. Badger Co. She has spent over 40 years on a spiritual path, which in the last 10 years has included the study of the labyrinth. She led the construction of the 7-circuit classical labyrinth at the W.S. Badger site. Most recently, Katie has been creating different labyrinth forms, guided by her exercises of drawing various types of labyrinths. Last year she completed a public arts project to create a labyrinth off airport Rd. in Keene, NH using the profile of Mt. Monadnock as a design feature.
