ic.org is definitely the place to start.

FWIW there is the Oakland Morehouse in Oakland and the Lafayette Morehouse in Lafayette, CA.

Hi,

Thanks for the IC recommendation, it's something I haven't thought about.  I was wondering if there are groups out there that meet about things like homesteading, gardening, something like that.  Maybe a monthly group for organic gardeners...any ideas?

Well, there's the Permaculture Connvergence in September, in Hopland, and the Solar Living Institute itself. The Occidental arts and ecology center puts on things, and there's Canticle Farms in the Bay area. Intentional communities are always rising and falling though.

In the East Bay, there is East Bay Permaculture, they have a facebook group and meet monthly in Oakland.

The School of Adaptive Agriculture is south of Willits in Mendocino county, they offers workshops sometimes, as well as the school.

Northern California is a fairly large area, maybe narrowing it down would help.
 
If we don't do the shopping, we won't have anything for dinner. And I've invited this tiny ad:
Groundnuts, Chestnuts, Elderberry, Comfrey+ from Interwoven Nursery
