INVITATION
Join us as we learn to attract and harvest rainwater, prevent forest fires, support local food security, and produce living sanctuaries that nourish and inspire.

OUR LEADERSHIP COUNCIL
Land stewardship and watershed regeneration leaders Alpha Lo and Charles Upton of the Regenerative Water Alliance and OsoEco, as well as a team of local soil regenerators, will guide us as we begin the transformation of an 8-acre farm (with a year-round stream and sloping terraces) into a biodiverse food forest.

WHEN & WHERE
This inspiring, hands-on 4-day eco-retreat and training takes place Thursday July 27th to Sunday July 30th in the Grass Valley-Nevada City region (approximately 30 minutes from Nevada City). Location will be provided to confirmed participants and donors.

WHO IS INVITED
This is a private event, ideally suited for land stewards and permies. Limited openings. Suggested donation is $600, which includes 4 days of live on-site training, meals and entertainment. Scholarships are available. To RSVP, text or call Alyson at 310.489.5032, or click here to reserve your space.

RESTORING THE LAND AND WATERWAYS
Training sessions will be filmed as part of a docu-series project designed to inspire and inform a growing network of permaculture food forests, and expand our knowledge of soil and water stewardship. Participants must be in good health, and will be responsible for their own safety and well-being. Strategies for developing a network of Permaculture Food Forests for California (and beyond) will be explored throughout.
