Biocitizen was incorporated in 2009 to provide educational services within the field of environmental philosophy. Biocitizen teaches students about the place they live in, for when they know what their place is, they take care of it. Places are nested in biomes, and we bring students into the field so they discover the ecological systems and processes that comprise them. Places are not only biomes, however. They are stories we live in. While students are learning ecology, they also learn the cultural history of their biomes.
The goal of Field Environmental Philosophy for Homeschoolers is to introduce students to their place in all of Los Angeles’ varied landscapes, and to encourage them to cultivate an ethic of care based on a new awareness of being part of a larger community including the land and creatures.
Each 11-week program draws upon our teaching staff’s expertise and intimate connection to areas both urban and wild throughout Los Angeles. Each week our curriculum focuses on one of our five guiding principles, which include; Biotic Immersion, Permaculture, Foraging/Survival Skills, Art, and Los Angeles History. Our carefully crafted itinerary is designed to promote and encourage students to connect to their environment, foster a sense of self and place, and of course inspire them to care about the world around them.
As a walking school, the majority of our program will be spent in parks, reserves, or outdoor settings. Some weeks we will visit collaborators who’s shared vision enhances our program’s capacity and provides safe, and experiential education opportunities.
