Our Mindful and Ecological Parent co-op is grounded in creating systems that reflect the patterns and principals in our local ecology. This approach is the most resilient and stable system know to us. Ecosystems are self-replicating, self-propagating, and self-maintaining. Learning and facilitating natural systems increase in complexity and resiliency over time and use resources effectively by cycling them through tens of thousands of interactions, which will be reflected in the community. As it turns out, the web of life is a net held together by connections. It may draw a comparison, an ecological network is not unlike a neural connections in the brain or – perhaps more abstractly – links within the curriculum, or social networks of our parent co-op and communities.

In ecological systems, the end of every process is the beginning of another. Every organism depends on countless others and, in turn, relies upon the whole. This process emphasizes the importance of mindfulness, the goal of education is not the acquisition of knowledge but the intertwining of it. The purpose of an mindful and ecological approach is to create communities capable of applying knowledge from multiple domains in new and novel situations. Creative problem solving is the ability to see or combine previously disconnected concepts in new circumstances. Through our Mindful and Ecological Parent co-op we can bring not only a community back into a sustainable place but the world.
