Earth Regeneration for the Children

Humanity is in a planetary predicament. We don't know if our species will survive the ongoing breakdown of social and ecological systems. Yet if we DO make it to the other side, it will be because we successfully answered the question "What do the children need in order to regenerate the Earth?"

This is a question that gave birth to this Regenerate Barichara effort. How do we bring dead rivers back to life with the children at the heart of our work? What kinds of schools do we need to create? How can we weave a tapestry of regenerative processes at the territorial scale? And more.

We are in the process of structuring our Regenerative Education Fund around three key projects in Barichara:

  • Bioparque Móncora :: A community reforestation effort that has been underway since 2009.

  • Origen del Agua :: A nature reserve that is restoring soils, water, and native forest while partnering with a local school in the territory.

  • Sueños del Bosque :: A Waldorf school that focuses on regeneration of people and planet.

The idea is that we take a portfolio approach to investing resources in education for the children who are learning how to identify native plants, cultivate their inner self-awareness and creativity, connect with local landscapes, and participate in regenerative efforts.

We are creating a support network for this work with the goal of raising $100,000 by the end of this year to fully support all three projects in 2025.

If you would like to help, please consider joining our Donor Support Network with a pledge of $500 or more. You will be invited to participate in live "Barichara Update" sessions and will get first notice of opportunities to join us for in-person gatherings.

We also have a "Better Than Carbon Offsets" Program for socially conscious businesses. And, of course, you can simply make a donation to the Barichara Regenerative Education Fund.

Together we can help children learn how to restore rivers, grow forests, and act in service to life at both territorial and planetary scales.

Onward, fellow humans!
