Land Literacy Program

 Spring 2024                                                                                                                                       Blackbird Lane, Celo

Blackbird Lane is a tract of raw land at the feet of the Black Mountains in unceded Tsalagi (Cherokee) land in Southern Appalachia.  Each weekend this spring, we are inviting some of our regional land-wise teachers to come offer their lenses, practices and skills for apprenticing to place. 


We welcome you to come outside with us, and build deeper connection to the living landscape who cradles your life.  Grow your sense of belonging by strengthening your personal relationship with with more-than-human world.  Tap into your innate human capacity to become a sensitive participant in your local ecology.  We believe it is time for our species to re-learn the path of stewardship on a planet whose laws and rhythms are changing.  Bring your curiosity and your care.

notes on sign-up, fees, and access   

You will find the class descriptions and guest teacher bios below.  You may sign up for as many classes as you like.  Email us via the contact form below to reserve your spot, and we will respond with instructions to send your deposit.  We have a limited number of spots in each class.  We will fill classes in the order we receive your emails, so long as you send your deposit within three days.  We will start a waiting list once a class fills.


Because the duration, material requirements, and instructors' travel times vary, the cost of each class is unique.  Some are able to offer a sliding scale.  As this is our pilot year, we do not have a scholarship program set up yet, and we intend to work toward that.  Please send us a note if a scholarship would help you access this program in the future, OR if you would like to contribute to a scholarship fund.  Your feedback is informative and valuable to us as we shape this program.

2024 Program

Reserve your spot!

Send us an email to reserve your place in a class or classes. 


We will let you know how to send your deposit to your instructor, and ask that you do so within three days. 


Once a class is full, we will begin a waiting list.  

Thank you! We look forward to seeing you outside this spring!
