Synopsis: Discover new skills by attending our workshops and events.

OE provides workshops and events on a wide range of topics. You can sign up for them here.

Currently, we are running our “Practice Sustainable Living Series” workshops featuring zoom classes with Master Gardeners. For a small fee you can join a select group with nearly one-on-one time with a master gardener on permaculture, composting, organic gardening and growing shiitake mushrooms. Once the Covid threat is reduced further, we will return to conducting these same workshops in person, outdoors with hands on instruction.

In the past we have provided direct training on such topics as understanding Environmental Impact Statements, compliance with the New York State Environmental Quality Review Act, sustainable planning, and community organizing. These were much sought after workshops and we will be re-establishing them again in the near future. 

We have held public conferences on the Climate Change crisis and its impact locally and globally with dynamic speakers from around the world. Facing the Climate Change crisis is part of our mission and we will continue to hold these conferences on this very important topic.
