Postcards to the Earth
Postcards to the Earth Workshop is a 3-hour, place-centered experience that cultivates interpersonal and community relationships. The experience is designed to develop and enrich relationships with self, earth and other through time in nature and artistic expression. During the workshop, participants will be guided in simple, accessible movement games to invigorate their bodies while fostering a sense of play and safety within the group. Participants then spend time alone outside in the natural world, followed by the artistic activity of crafting and writing a personal message to the earth in the form of a postcard. After we create our postcards, participants have the opportunity to share their messages through voice and movement in a nurturing milieu. Participants will leave with enough information, experience and guidance to facilitate a simplified version of the workshop with their students, colleagues or community. All materials are provided; open to all ages and ability. Presented by Maren Waldman of Maren Waldman’s Project Garden. Participants will get to this workshop by carpool or by bus. Please indicate your travel preferences on the registration form.  Advance registration required for field trips and workshop intensives.  Pre-register IN THE EVENTBRITE REGISTRATION SYSTEM* by October 20th.  First-come, first-serve.  Limited capacity.  *Signing up to attend this on the SCHED system does not complete your registration and save you a spot.  REGISTRATION IS CLOSED

Building Bicycle-Friendly Communities
What makes a bike friendly community? Many things contribute to making a community bike friendly and getting more people on bikes- infrastructure, culture, land use, access to affordable bikes and advocacy.

Participants will meet at Community Cycles and up to 10 participants will have the opportunity to rent free bikes from a nearby Bcycle station if people would like to join the bike tour but do not have a bike.

Facing the Mess We Are In Without Going Crazy
Limited Capacity seats available

The Work that Reconnects, based on the pioneering work of Joanna Macy, is a perspective-changing, life-affirming set of practices that help us face and feel our deepest, most healing responses to the world's crises. This workshop will offer the "7th Generation" practice, through which we can reclaim the energy for action that is thwarted when we put our emotional responses on the back burner. We invite you to reopen to your inherent sense of interconnectedness with humans, other species and as an integral part of 'life in earth,’ and then head into the rest of the Front Range Bioneers weekend with new inspiration and vision of your part in the healing of the world. Presented by Belinda Griswold and Sherry Ellms. Advance registration requested.  Advance registration required for field trips and workshop intensives.  Pre-register IN THE EVENTBRITE REGISTRATION SYSTEM* by October 20th.  First-come, first-serve.  Limited capacity.  *Signing up to attend this on the SCHED system does not complete your registration and save you a spot.  ADVANCE REGISTRATION IS CLOSED AND THIS SESSION IS FULL!

Within this workshop, led by Jeanine Canty and Ramon Parish, we will explore the connections between race, environment and what we choose to see and not see based on our collective and individual framings.

The workshop will include some lecture and will be highly experiential. Participants should wear comfortable clothing and be prepared to experience emotionally challenging content through dialogue and movement.
