Occidental Arts and Ecology CenterHolistic ecology organization.
"OAEC's [and the OAEC Water Institute's] work focuses on cultivating ecological literacy and building the capacity of civic and social movement leaders and organizations to guide their communities toward an ecologically regenerative, economically viable, and socially just future. We see that the most innovative and effective change is happening at the regional and local levels â€” all around the world. We work with communities in our own home region of Northern California, and we learn from and support similar efforts in many other parts of the U.S. and world." Founded by Brock Dolman, director; biologist; Permaculture designer/educator; photographer/poet.
