Touch the Earth

Rhonda Baird

Welcome to Touch the Earth

A project of Sheltering Hills Design

A story, a hope

Touch the Earth is a collaborative project. It is grounded in an experience of the Earth as our primary teacher, the story of humanity, the work of community, personal resilience, and the joy of emergent family and household cultures. Throughout our years of organizing, teaching, writing, study and practice across many fields, we build a community of practice focused on earth-based living, tending the Earth, and cultivating personal wholeness. We invite you into this community.
