Hello! My partner and I live in the San Bernardino mountains, at about 5000. I've lived here for about 11 years. We are new to permaculture (I started a PDC when I first moved here, but had to stop due to pregnancy and other long story reasons). We hope to buy some property in the near future, but know that this will be a challenging area to do permaculture in. I think we have realistic expectations.

Anyway, hoping to connect with others in SoCal mountains, if you are out there!

Not so many miles away but a couple of climate zones for sure! We're in Tujunga, foothills of Verdugo Mountains, only 1000 ft elevation. Welcome on board!

Hi Hilary, I am a permaculturalist currently wwoofing in northern california but I grew up in lake arrowhead and consider it my home. I want to come back and help to advance the mountain community's self-sufficiency/collapse resilience. I can begin the journey only by connecting with an established network of like-minded permie-type folks, or if none such network exists, to contact individuals such as yourself and try to create one.

Please, if you have any suggestions let me know. I left the mountain because it held no opportunities to study permaculture, nor could I discover any community of sustainability advocacy, nor even a gardening club of any kind. This lack of activism in our region only fuels my feelings of responsibility but it seems an overwhelming task for a 23-year old with meager resources.

There is a lot of permie activity in Pasadena, Altadena & the foothill communities & the west side. La Loma Development, Institute for Urban Ecology, Dervaes Urban Homestead...

Rishi has the 'The Growing Home'http://thegrowinghome.net out in Diamond Bar, further out in your direction, but not at elevation.

Not right next door, but consider us extended family.

Hi! Im originally from Pasadena but i just bought some vacant land in Ceaderpines park to start my permaculture adventure!! MY end goal is to develop a little off grid escape! I would love to connect, grow my permaculture network and exchange info on what systems work, what grows and what does not. If you're still around and interested let me know!
