About Design for Mitigating Disaster: Free Community Permaculture Call

Santa Cruz Permaculture is offering a free “Open House” call on “Design for Mitigating Disaster" on Tuesday, September 22, from 7:00 - 8:30pm on Zoom.

Join us for a lecture and discussion in the same format as our upcoming Community Permaculture Calls series: Each call includes a keynote talk on a relevant and seasonal topic. This is followed by a small group conversation for reflection, and a whole group conversation and Q+A. We close the calls with invitations for how you can apply what you’ve learned in your home and community.

Consider the disasters that are most likely to affect your home community. Whether your home is susceptible to wildfire, earthquakes, floods, tornadoes, or hurricanes, we all know we should be prepared. But what does effective preparation look like and how can permaculture design help us to think beyond our individual household emergency kits? How can we design and prepare our landscapes and neighborhoods to mitigate disaster? Join us for this free 1.5 hour call to learn more, engage in discussion, and begin to create a plan for your home, landscape, and neighborhood.

If you'd like to participate in the small group conversations, please register on Zoom:

This Open House call is also a great chance to learn more about the upcoming call series and get access to discounted pricing for the October 6 – December 8 cohort!
