How can we bring permaculture into homes and neighborhoods? What are some effective strategies for neighborhood organizing using our permaculture know-how? How can local governmental agencies support permaculture and community resilience?

Learn about the Resilient Hubs Initiative, a collaboration between the NorCal Resilience Network and Daily Acts, is an exciting new model that uses permaculture principles to create create a network of homes, schools and neighborhood centers that are “ready for anything” - better prepared for natural disasters, climate change and other stresses in our community.

The first hour will describe the project and the organizations behind it, supported by a panel of representatives from community farms and homesteads who are part of the pilot project. The second hour will look at specific sites and how this model can be used to transform the site into a model Resilient Hub. The third hour will look at how this project can go viral, from looking at government agencies and other funding sources to getting media attention.
