Living Hearth is organized by Land by Hand and our growing community of artists, farmers, educators and creatives exploring the resilient culture, traditions, & skills of the Upper Midwest bioregion.

Guided by an Open Source Learning model, we tap into the wisdom and experience of neighbors, businesses, artists, farmers & storytellers. The connecting threads of our work are the three ethics of Permaculture: Earth Care, People Care, & Fair Share.

Hearth = Hear + Heart + Earth + Art = Home: a place of gathering, sharing & nourishment

The hearth is the traditional symbol of a home, a gathering space of nourishment.
