This event invites us to question how we can live nonviolently towards the earth. It will consist of workshops, discussions & a movie around this topic; natural building, wilderness skills, urban life up-cycling, vegan cooking/animal rights workshops & a food waste reduction action (DiscoSoup!). We will also hear stories, spoken word & talks such as the 1000 Simple Shelter project.

Together, we will help Edinburgh Peace & Justice Centre begin building a permanent peace garden and carve a peace pole, facilitated by Owen Pilgrim who will also be sharing stories about nonviolence. Children & dog friendly.
