Hello,
My name is Melanie. I am moving to Northern California come this March for an internship with the wonderful Sandy Bar Ranch. If you haven't heard of them yet you can find out more about them at sandybar.com or their permaculture region website klamathknot.com. It's great to hear all these good things about the people of this area. I now live in New York and was thankful to have been apart of a CRAFT group this past season (Collaborative Regional Alliance of Farmer Training) and was wondering if Humboldt County or N Cali has any websites or connections to groups or organizations that focus on keeping connected within our regions. I find it very important to be connected to the regions that I live in, I'm moving from the Hudson Valley in NY and it's been wonderful but I am excited for NorCal!

Any websites or names or anything is very appreciative. Looking forward to hearing from all of you in this wonderful area!

Be Well,
- Melanie

I am npot sure if you are still there and that you did not get a response to your message. I am very troubled by the permaculture and other localist types are pretty unorganized in Nor Cal. I am in Napa but am pretty familiar with the region. There is Solar livng institute in Hopland, Regenerative Design institute in Bolinas, Occidental Arts and Ecology center in Occidental, and Daily Acts in Petaluma. There is also an eco village finder site that I have around somewhere. i could tell you more if your interested.

I've been in N.Cal (wonder what geo area that includes) between the Bay Area, Redding + Tahoe... I now own acreage in the Sierra and have been very active trying to find my tribe to get an ecoVillage started. There's quite a lot of things on co-housing around which is not my thing. Next weekend, there's a get together east of Redding for an aspiring 'Shire' ecovillage which I will be attending. Just throwing this out there - I would be very interested in meeting people who want to start an ecoVillage and have the persistence, some basic skills and focus on permaculture ++.

My partner and I live a ways outside of Red Bluff. I'm aware of the Shire Springs project but haven't been there yet. My partner and I were burned by some attempts at community where we've lived previously, so we are pretty much homesteaders now. But friends are much missed.....friends to visit and hang out with and not to live on the same land with......

Hey Folks!

Come join the Shasta Permaculture Group for our next meeting! We are meeting at the Sacramento River South Bonnyview boat launch at 6 pm on the 11th of July! Wolfgang is going to be taking us on a walk around the river teaching us of our surroundings, what’s edible, and what’s not! It’s going to be fun and educational.

We are also getting closer on Redding’s First Grub Club! So we will talk more about getting local farmers and back yard growers involved in feeding local folks with good local food!

Thanks again Everyone!

Check out the http://www.shatspermaculture.com website. Just got it up and going. But dont judge...still under a bit of construction

Thanks for correcting my spelling! Been in the garden a lot and don't think my fingers are as good at typing as they use to be! Just wanted to let you guys know the walk was amazing and the next meeting should be packed with people eager to get the group more organized and the Grub Club on its way to opening! The Facebook page has been going for a few days now and can't wait to see it fill up with people talking local goodness! Ken the Redding Worm man has been asked to talk about the important role of calcium in the soil!

Hello Fred, I am interested in starting or joining an intentional community and I currently reside in the Placerville area. I was communicating with someone just today about finding someone with land in the region. I stumbled across this thread and, of course, you. What is your status currently on building your ecovillage? And what is it that turns you off about co-housing, as well? I realize this post is 3+ yrs old, but hopefully you get this message and we can communicate further.

Update on Northern California ecovillage... tried pretty hard for the last 4 years trying to get people together to form an intentional community... short answer: nada.   I lived part-time at Lost Valley in Oregon for 2 years and full time for about 6 months.   Lotsa wonderful lessons in actually doing it!!   Would welcome anyone else who wants to try again in northern California... but this time around there's gotta be 8 people committed to it before I'll invest more of my time.
Cheers!
