Eco Means Home Haiku Workshop

Eco Means Home Haiku Workshop is a writing workshop that will challenge individuals to think about their own connection to land and their ideas about what home means to them. Combining concepts, the EMHH workshop will use guided meditation, breathing techniques, and a brief education about eco-systems (i.e. economy, ecology, economics, etc.). Students will be challenged to listen to each other, listen to themselves, create and share their own haiku.

This workshop is FREE, aimed at young students aged 12–18, and limited to 12 participants.
