Who We Are
We are your friends and neighbors. We are business people, social activists, tribal members, students, retired folks and average folks you see on the street every day. We are committed to building a resilient, self-reliant community on the Northcoast. Please join us!
In November 2013 the partner groups organized the first local “Re-skilling” event called The Sustainable Living Fair held at the Jefferson Community Center. Focusing on teaching basic skills – winter gardening, mushroom cultivation, home canning & preserving, composing and “vermiculture” and other important techniques – the workshops were a big hit.
Our focus is teaching living skills that help build community resiliency – self-reliance in a time of rapid change. Over 120 community members participated in the first event. We conducted a second skill-share in April 2014 at the Jefferson Community Center where over 300 people attended. Starting in 2015, we invited tribal and homesteading communities to join us when we gathered on Oct. 24th & 25th at Redwood Acres in Eureka.
This year (2016) we're expanding the event into a 3-day event on Oct. 8th - 10th (Formerly Columbus Day weekend - now we're calling it "Indigenous People's Weekend"). We'll have over 40 workshops over 3 days, traditional food, entertainment, camping and social gatherings. Come join us for this exciting event!
