Our Give Back
The Organic Motion team took on the voluntary management roles of the Earth Care Collective committee in March 2019. Earth Care Collective (ECC) is a not for profit organisation dedicated to collaborative education, training, projects and events to enhance community skills for sustainability.
In 2020 Organic Motion became a major sponsor of the Earth Care Collective supporting the charity's growth. ECC sponsors are a community of Earth Carers motivated and inspired to choose earth inspired proactivism to create change.
Are you an Earth Carer?
Let's get together. By becoming a Sprout Member you join a collective of people who are gathering, nurturing and growing a regenerative culture through sharing skills for sustainability. This means: monthly "Food for Thought" social networking feasts with like minded eco-conscious locals, "Movies that Matter" film screenings of inspiring solution based educational documentaries and "Seasonal gatherings" to celebrate nature’s flow with the changing of the seasons.
Our next generation of Earth Carers are being inspired, nurtured and supported through the "Nature Kids Club" program. Underlying these events, grows ECC’s community tree planting exchange. Collaborating with local land owners, members and businesses, ECC coordinates regular tree planting projects across Far North Queensland.
The Earth Care Collective is currently raising funds to take Permaculture on tour delivering Skills for Sustainability and Nature Kids programs to regional and remote communities across Australia. Visit the Donate page to contribute.
If you are an eco, earth, health and wellbeing inspired business, interested in engaging with your target market to share what you do and love? We are excited to chat about sponsorship and collaborative options.
However you might like to exchange energy for enriching experiences, connections and proactions we are looking forward to working with you.
Organic Motion is a Patreon of Robin Clayfield’s project for creating ‘Dynamic Teaching and Facilitation’ Books and Resources.
Who is Robin Clayfield?
Well, she’s the founder of Dynamic Groups and has been training teachers, facilitators and group leaders for more than 25 years in using a heart-centred, inspiring and Permaculture-grounded methodology for group work and group learning. She’s now collating all of her materials into an empowering compendium of books, mini-books, games, and resources.
What is her project about?
Robin’s personal aim, through her work, is to stimulate the foundations of education, training and group work globally, to send a big spark of vitality, hope and empowerment out through all our groups and learning environments, and all facilitators who work for a better world. When groups are on purpose and in harmony, when members are engaged and feeling included, there are less conflicts and disruptions and groups are more likely to be richly successful.
So, our backing her in Patreon will fund the publication of a five book series entitled Dynamic Teaching and Facilitation. The themes of these books are:
- 1.‘Dynamic Groups, Dynamic Learning’ methodology
- 2.A huge toolbox of processes for dynamic teaching and facilitation
- 3.Dynamic decision making, meetings and discussions
- 4.Permaculture, Deep Ecology, nature connection and environmental education processes
- 5.Ceremony, ritual, self-care and inner-work processes.
Book 1 will be divided into six mini-books, each of which will be available in both printed and electronic form:
- 1. Dynamic Teaching and Facilitation – The foundations
- 2. Dynamic Teaching and Facilitation – Group and personal empowerment
- 3. Dynamic Teaching and Facilitation – Unleashing creativity
- 4. Dynamic Teaching and Facilitation – A magical toolbox of processes and resources
- 5. Dynamic Teaching and Facilitation – The art and skill of facilitation
- 6. Dynamic Teaching and Facilitation – The learning environment.
Anyone who attends our courses and workshops will know that we have drawn upon our experience of training with Robin and is richly engaging for it. We see it as the future of education and group work!
