About the Author, 'Earth Child'
Dar Cavallara 'Earth Child' began her journey into sustainable living in 1997 when she was traveling through Colorado and met the late Glen Harcourt of Steeprock Jointery. Glen was pioneering alternative building/fuels and had established an artisans guild style EcoVillage for apprentices on his red-rock cliff-side land. The inspiration Glen ignited in her was the beginning of a tour through the western US of living and working at various developing EcoVillages and sustainable communities.
In the year 2000 she founded a nomadic non-denominational 'ecoministry' that operated on the Mayan calendar and whose mission was "to offer charitable services that educate, assist, network and facilitate the healing of the Earth and her children." It was during this time that the Earth Charter Initiative was launched and after endorsing the charter the ecoministry became a networking vehicle for the Earth Charter.
The purpose of this site is to share valuable experiential knowledge and resources related to the Earth Charter as a living people's document and the myriad challenges that the 'official' Earth Charter Initiative faces in its own evolutionary process. It is the sincere intention of the author to have this work and effort lead to a healthy Declaration of Interdependence and Interdependent Partnerships manifest between people everywhere who have endorsed the Earth Charter.
