Collaborations with Local Governments

city-petaluma-header-onThe NorCal Community Resilience Network is committed to working with local governments to move forward community resilience projects.

For example, Daily Acts works in collaboration with a number of municipalities in Sonoma County including City of Petaluma, City of Cotati, City of Sebastopol, and Town of Windsor. Their work with municipalities is predominantly focused on water conservation initiatives and over the past five years, they have helped to transform thousands of square feet of water-thirsty lawn into edible gardens, and they’ve supported the installation of dozens of home-scale greywater and rainwater harvesting systems.  For more information about Daily Acts visit their website.
