Permaculture Day Tour
Visiting regenerative sites with a veteran permaculture designer as the tour guide can be a rich and deep experience. See the elements of permaculture in action while having them explained and getting your questions answered about them , etc. We will tour three different regenerative sites in Pinellas County to get a good overview of what is being done in our area to create sustainable landscapes and human systems. Example of sites we will see: 1. An urban homestead - This site has beautiful fruit trees, edible landscaping, annual gardens, plus bees, chickens, solar and more. 2. A platinum LEED green building - We will examine strategies you can use to retrofit your home, and learn about how to increase yields in your home 3. A community permaculture site - See the various ways that permaculture can integrate with a community to enrich it, as well as produce a great garden! You will see a variety of unusual and familiar edible plant selections, where they do well in the landscape, how to increase the yield of your home, reduce costs and energy use, learn about a variety of options for landscaping your home, see some appropriate tech devices such as sun ovens, and more. You will go home with cuttings of some plants. October 22, 2018, 10 AM to approximately 3 PM. The day rate is $35 unless you are part of the design class in which case it is included. Starting location is the Largo Community Center. When paying simply enter "Oct 22 Day Tour". Koreen Brennan and others will be tour guides.

What we're about

The purpose of this group is to offer a space for those who want to create all the things about city living that we would most love to live with. That would include access to fresh, healthy food, clean water, clean air, educational opportunities, lots of art, music, dance and theatre, parks and nature, community gathering places, community gardens, decent mass transit, and healthy neighborhoods. What is your vision of what Clearwater could be?

We currently have "Green Mixers" every third Tuesday at Moccasin Lake Nature Park at 6 PM. Every month, we meet more great people at these.

A few of us are working on some projects to revitalize the downtown area. We have some great ideas in the works, and are looking for more people to play with. What would you like to see happen downtown?

We are interested in getting community gardens going and there is some great news on that front too. We'll keep you updated here.

We want to know what is important to you and what you would like to see happen in this city, so please, let us know!
