A key element of our model is creating Resource Hubs for restoration materials to deploy them to local communities and aid in the ecological recovery of the fire damaged areas. Everything from wood chips to tools, we organize volunteers and donations and get them to the areas that need it most to prevent soil erosion and start restoration work now. Businesses, homeowners, churches share their land, you donate materials and we organize the delivery to the community. Where else would it go, the dump? No way, let’s reduce, reuse and recycle!
We also use these materials to create community demonstration sites that showcase how permaculture and regenerative models work. We’ve had over 50 property owners in the area express they want a demonstration site on their land. So we are building a community of volunteers and experts to serve, and a mobile unit to help us do that! We plant harmonious trees and plants, design natural irrigation channels and create a habitat to allow nature to do what it does best, naturally. What do you get? Healthy nutrient-rich soil, biomass, food and abundance! Homeowners, businesses and landowners get trained and we all play our role in regenerating and restoring our land.
On April 26-28th, we mobilized over 100 volunteers and experts to work on a new demonstration site at Pine Ridge Elementary School.
Do you have any of these materials you’d like to donate for our projects or to give away?
This list changes seasonally and depends on the needs of our various demonstration sites. So keep checking back!

Large Resource Hubs
We currently have three staging sites for large, bulk drop offs, a church, hardware store and fire station.
If you’re a business or organization that has about half acre property with a large enough parking lot for a semi truck to turn around, and want to be a Resource Hub, give us a call! Covered spots a bonus.
Small Resource Hubs
Multiple individual or community, neighborhood sites serve as different staging areas for compost, seed propagation sites and woodchips. Yep, we can help you start your own seed plant nursery to give away to the community
Introduce yourself and tell us how you want to get involved in the project!
