You are invited to get your hands dirty in our beautiful space!

Come enjoy the fresh air, spectacular views, and wooded groves as you work on our main circuit Five Elements trail that begins and ends at the Community Center at EarthRise. Nestled in the hills above Sonoma and Marin counties in Petaluma, our 194-acre retreat center holds the space for the profound work of groups, businesses, and individuals. In order to facilitate and incorporate more land-based transformative experiences into our own programs and those of the broader community, we are focusing on upgrading this trail that is in need of loving care. The work day is an opportunity to participate in creating a space for communing with the land and with fellow earth-lovers. A hearty lunch from our world-famous kitchen will be provided to volunteers who put in a full work day!

WHEN: Saturday, April 7
TIME: 10am-5pm
