First US Ecosystem Restoration Camp in Paradise, California

A great thank you to all the volunteers, permaculture experts, gracious hosts, and inspiring Paradise, Ca locals that came together to help make the first US Ecosystem Restoration Camp an amazing success! Partnering with the local Camp Fire Restoration Project, and Pine Ridge Elementary School we planted impactful seeds of change by restoring the school’s educational and decorative gardens and facilities.

The United States and the world received an unequivocal wake up call when last year an unprecedented fire destroyed Paradise California. “It covered an area of 153,336 acres (almost 240 sq. miles), and destroyed 18,804 structures, with most of the damage occurring within the first four hours.” The children each morning drive through miles of absolute wreckage to get to school, but now they will find beautiful gardens there. What is more, they will learn with their families how to restore their town with permaculture techniques they learn in the new educational garden.

SEEDS OF CHANGE

Permaculture is founded on Ethics and Principles based on how nature works.

Permaculture incorporates indigenous wisdom, modern science, creativity, and systems thinking. Today people apply permaculture thinking to many aspects of life, including agriculture, social structures, building construction, education, business practices, economics, and spirituality.

Anyone can apply permaculture’s 3 Core Ethics; Earth Care, People Care, and Future Care to most aspects of their lives. From the garden, to the classroom,  or to the boardroom, permaculture provides a framework for living that is not only sustainable, but regenerative – allowing resources to become more abundant, rather then depleted.

Regenerative Grassroots Philanthropy joins us together to donate our extra resources to those projects that focus on permaculture and other practices that regenerate the environment and enhance the social fabric. By combining your donations, large and small, financial and other, the Abundant Earth Foundation can have an exponential impact on creating a healthier world.
