Due to the COVID restrictions of 2020, we have been focusing our Camps on Workshops for education and support in regeneration of the ecosystems here in Butte County. It is our hope that the information and education is applicable as a model for regeneration after disasters such as the Camp Fire and North Complex/Bear Fire.
Our first round of Workshops was the Sweep Out the Broom and Growing Your Garden in Small Spaces Workshops on October 18, 2020 at the Paradise Community Guild former location of the Norton Buffalo Hall. Matthew Trumm led “Sweep Out the Broom: Weed Abatement Without Roundup.” Jennifer Peterson led “Urban Gardening: Grow Your Garden in Small Spaces.” Dan Joseph led Workday projects of watering, weeding, and spreading wood chips for the community garden. We also livestreamed the Event on Facebook for those who wanted to stay home. Here are the videos of that day. Thank you to all who participated!

Thank you for following us in implementing this grand vision of creating a bio-regional hub and model for community-based habitat restoration. With your support, we can make this happen. Your donations and partnership give more people opportunities to be trained in ecosystem restoration and create new permaculture demonstration sites to heal and restore the land and lives affected by California’s deadliest wildfire.
Our collective action will create a sustainable and regenerative model with new systems for disaster response, resilient communities, and landscape restoration that inspire a culture shift.
What is the goal?
- To restore land in the areas affected by the devastating fire, create healthy ecosystems with sustainable local food sources, build fire safe homes and buildings, create green jobs, and teach local communities about ecosystem restoration.
