Calendar of Events

Throughout the semester, EcoHouse will be hosting forums and workshops. Forums will be roundtable discussions that focus on theoretical aspects of environmentalism, such as social justice and permaculture. Workshops will give participants practical skills for incorporating environmentalist ethics into daily life, such as how to can tomatoes and how to grow sprouts in the winter.
