We would love to invite you to join the Earthskin Family of Friends and be a part of the Alchemy of Earthskin supporting transformation and connection between the Earth and Community.


Ecological Artist Residencies:

Earthskin provides opportunities for Artist Residents to develop their work and sense of wellbeing through deepening connection with self, community, and the land, in a haven of quiet where nature is the true teacher. 


Earth Education Scholarships:

Earthskin provides annual scholarships for Permaculture Design and Regenerative Agriculture Courses to offer education that takes responsibility for restoring the future trajectory of all life. As well as EBANZ Conference Sponsorships to develop the potential of a natural building future in New Zealand.
