What we're about

The purpose of this meetup is to bring together people interested in the principles of Permaculture Design: Care of the Earth, Care of People, Share the Surplus... Meetups will offer easily accessible ideas and information to those interested in working with nature to improve their quality of life.

Permaculture is a holistic, “big-picture” approach to design which can apply to almost any field. Imagine a world where plants and living systems do most of the work instead of machines and production lines. Industrial technology is arguably reaching its limit, while nature's design potential has yet to be explored. Permaculture is about creating enduring design systems that mimic the simplicity and sophistication of nature - and of course community - the most resilient design system of all!

Phoenix Garden Permablitz!

Youth Services Center – Phoenix Garden Site

Join us the third Saturday of every month at the amazing Phoenix Garden serving the youth at the juvenile detention facility in San Mateo. We are helping to transform this barren seven-acre site into an amazing and regenerative permaculture oasis. To date, we've planted a 150 tree fruit orchard, several native trees and have been building the soil onsite. We've barely scratched the surface and need your help to make this garden a reality. If you're able, please consider making a small donation using the "Chip In" button to the left of your screen. Donations will be used to offset the costs associated with using www.meetup.com.
