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.
