About Our School

Thank you for visiting!

Meet our Elder & e.i.m. instructor

Olivia Chumacero

Dedicated to your Inner Nature…

…that which comes natural to us all/Listen quietly to what it tells you/Live with it away from everything & everyone/Be patient/Give it time/Nurture it  in you everyday/though it may be the challenge of all challenges/Understand it like a child swallowing every gulp/Eyes gorged in curiosity/Gently let it deflower your life/through pain/through love/Allow these words to exude from your blood memory because anger and fear stunts the spirit/limits the breath of road needed to travel in the way of Nature/Do not stray/Do not live distance from your Inner Nature/the heart congeals runs cold/Cradle your Inner Nature/ Laugh without restrain so one day you may dance into your death song/ Thankful of the dandelion seed floating to nowhere/Thankful of a mother’s breath immersed in childbirthing-pain/

Contemplate in gratitude  while dreaming awake/Because/It takes a lifetime to know Yourself

-O.C.

We are becoming a worker and member-owned cooperative school!

Ecocene Stewards

We are a team of six humyns who are transitioning the school from a sole-proprietor business owned by Sarita Dougherty into a cooperative! We started meeting in August of 2021 and are now in our fundraising phase as of May 2022. We have generated our collective vision, purpose and values and are so excited to begin drafting and filing our by-laws!

More website updates to come shortly with all of our Ecocene stewards, their bios, photos and roles!
