This group formed with the idea that community and planet are our best resource, and is open to everyone in Solano and Contra Costa Counties. Classes we have organized include:

Soap Making
Cheese Making
Backyard/Frontyard Edible Gardening
Native Pollinators
Earthquake/Emergency Preparedness (Bug Out Bags, etc)
Solar Energy
Ham Radios
Greenhouse Building
Aquaponics

The classes listed above are a sample of classes we have organized in the past.

OR, if you have suggestions about classes you would love to see
OR, if you are interested in collaborating and sharing your skills
... the sky is the limit...

Classes will meet in Vallejo, Benicia, Fairfield, Suisun, and Vacaville.

In addition to that, we will keep abreast of local ordinance and civic code that affect your ability to garden and keep backyard livestock, or attach solar or grey water systems. Solano County code varies widely between cities, so we will try to keep informed before the code changes in either direction. We will talk about the best ways to keep city councils and city code on the side of the small, sustainable urban farmer.

We would like to host movie nights and picnics in our many parks, as a way to get to know one another. If any of these ideas intrigue you, sign up and join in!
