Join us for an interactive day of food, fun and creative solutions for community resilience, energy independence, and promoting traditional ecological knowledge as we celebrate the international climate change work day on 10-10-10.

We'll be making adobe bricks and sharing the time tested art of natural building, which emphasizes respect for traditional environmental knowledge and also shows us valuable low energy methods for making homes, community spaces, ovens and more. The bricks will then be used to build the outdoor classroom at the School Farm.

A basic acorn preparation workshop will highlight California's pre-colonial sustainable ecological food system based on oak trees and acorns. Learn about the staple crop that supported the indigenous people of California for thousands of years, long before fossil fuel powered agriculture.

See demonstrations of appropriate technology like solar ovens and dehydrators, rocket stove, compost toilet, pedal power, and cob oven.

The ovens will be blazing so bring something to bake, pizza toppings, or some other local fare to share and compare at our ultra local potluck party. We're asking people to go as lo....cal as they can go by bringing healthy, homemade food and drinks made from local ingredients. More local means less energy consumption and more power to the people!
