Shmita Hives

Date: September 6, 2021
– September 25, 2021
This year-long program will take place in communities across Turtle Island. It will start during the month of Tishrei on dates that vary by location. The curricula will offer options for hives to study together, practice rest and collective care, access play and embodiment, identify needs in their local communities, and collaborate on social/environmental justice projects. There will be an opportunity for cross-pollination among groups midway through the year, in the form of an online hive retreat in winter 2021/22. We hope this can be an opportunity for local hives to connect with a broader network, and find inspiration and support to sustain their local projects. Individuals and organizations that want to host a group can access the free curricula by emailing Those who want to find a group to join can sign up at
