Ermah Ge’s extensive learning community has evolved since 2001 from Oregon to Maine.  It includes over 75 advanced students who have completed courses in Earth 101, and have pursued more advanced study in our Earth Studies Program.  Participants in the Earth 101 Experience will benefit from the knowledge of many advanced students whose lives have been deeply and positively changed by this knowledge.  Here are testimonials from some of them. Many life-long friendships have been formed in our community.

Why is our learning community important?  We believe that the most important factor in effectively addressing climate change is a community that shares an accurate vision of the issue and how to most effectively address it by mitigation and increasing community resilience.
