FANE Ecology Field School

A cabin in Newfoundland surrounded by trees

We are on the edge of the North Atlantic in the oldest settled part of North America, on the site of an abandoned community known as Burnt Head. Situated on ten acres of boreal coastal forest in Conception Bay North, Newfoundland, the Burnt Head Hermitage is an off-grid homestead with sheepfold, orchard, and vegetable garden in development.

Who We Are

We are a small group of concerned citizens, thinkers, and practitioners trying to make a difference by working on how we think about nature. In 2015 we founded “For a New Earth” to promote ecological conversion at every level, from the grassroots to the elites. Our method is simple. Make ecological knowledge available and compelling everywhere. Share the truth of the situation.
