Lena Eastes and Nicole Rease are in conversation with host Robin Carpenter about the work they are doing at the Regenerative Design Institute (RDI) in bringing the Growing Goddess, rites of passage journey for young women to RDI. It's a five day overnight camp for young women ages 11-16 that creates a culture with the support of mentors and a close connection to the earth to mark the powerful transition into womanhood. The Farm and Foodshed report covers our relationship to our Foodshed, but also reminds us that not only can well respected land nuture our physical bodies by feeding us, but it also shares its wisdom with us through out our lives if we are open to the connection.
