Interface between

Land Stewardship and Restorative Justice 

with Dor Haberer ,

Gaia U MSc candidate

Gaia U MSc candidate Dor Haberer introduces the community he lives in, Canticle Farm. Located in East Oakland, USA the community has combined four different urban plots with six houses into a thriving permaculture garden with a pond, they are currently in the process of restoring a creek, and have other structures in the property including a yurt, a tiny home, and a moon lodge. Canticle Farm is also a non-profit and have a house for formerly incarcerated prisoners who were sentenced for life and are additionally creating a space for refugees from Central America.



During this interactive webinar with Dor, we explore how Restorative Justice can become  integrated into ecological and social projects around the world.


A deep lover of permaculture and ecology, Dor Haberer has spent the last few years investigating holistic farming systems, regenerative agriculture, community structures, and simple living. He graduated from Tulane University with a bachelor’s degree in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology. Afterwards, he managed the farm at Ramah in the Rockies summer camp for three years. There he developed a program that incorporated organic farming and animal husbandry with permaculture and Jewish earth-based ethics and philosophy. The whole program was rooted in Jewish text and ritual. When he was not at camp, he was engaged in deep investigation in permaculture, living and studying in places including Sadhana Forest in Auroville India, Turtle Lake Refuge in Durango, CO, Sierra Seeds Cooperative in Northern California, Kibbutz Neot Smadar in the Negev, the Possibility Alliance in northeastern Missouri, and the Panya Project in Thailand where he completed his permaculture design course. He completed his second course at the Practical Permaculture Research Institute in the Sierra foothills. He also helps out with Wilderness Torah, serving as one of the chefs in their festivals.


In addition to being an associate in the Ecosocial Design Masters program with Gaia University, Dor is completing his license in shiatsu therapy, putting on retreats with his brother, and get funding from a jewish organization called the Moishe House. The retreats are either Re-wilding Judaism retreats or retreats for men on vulnerability, nature connection, and authentic relating.
