People's Permaculture Potluck Party & Holiday Gift Swap

East Bay Permaculture Guild (art by Jessica Perlstein)

Special guest speaker, TBD!!! Co-sponsored by the NorCal Community Resilience Network and the East Bay Permaculture Guild
permit word cloudYou are cordially invited to come vibe up the holiday cheer with your East Bay permahomies!! This year, we'll be doing a special sustainable version of the white elephant gift exchange! If you'd like to participate, please come with a gift made with love. This can be from your garden, a sustainable/local business, your own crafty creative design, or a promise of future skill share support (ie, greywater consultation, a quick strategic coaching session, or a half-hour singing lesson). Any and all gifts are welcome, no matter how small!

Over a delicious potluck dinner, we'll share briefly about the NorCal Network's exciting work to cross-pollinate with the movers and shakers of Bay Area social and environmental justice movements for its upcoming February launch. With good people, good food, and good work, this is a celebration you won't want to miss!

Note: While this is not a cohousing-specific gathering, we know lots of EBCOHO members are interested in co-creating natural environments for living that include sustainable food production, and you can find many allies for building community at gatherings like this. And while permaculture is stereotypically about plants and animals, don't forget that it ultimately includes energy and social layers, and cohousing can be a key building block in sustainable community living.

Join area permies at our regional community-organizing center, EBCOHO partner a PLACE for Sustainable Living in North Oakland on the second Monday of the month for an East Bay Permaculture Guild monthly meeting. Please bring your questions, announcements, ideas, stories, and visions of how permaculture can help us bridge through the transition as we co-create a more permanent culture based on Earth Care, People Care and Fair Share. 

If possible please bring a dish for the potluck, produce or seeds to share. 
Please forward this invitation to anyone who might be interested in attending. 

Donations to help support PLACE are always appreciated.
