NorCal Community Resilience Network seeks to focus on some of following initiatives to strengthen and support grassroots groups on the front lines building resilient communities:
We hope to promote exemplary leadership programs who have a track record of support for grassroots solutions-oriented groups, including:
Collaborations with Local Governments
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.

Re-Skilling and Awareness-Building
Want to learn how to build a cob bench? Learn about canning? Watch a movie about renewable energy? Our featured re-skilling workshops focus on appropriate technology, permaculture-oriented and resilience-building skills.
Other Permaculture Resources
Permaculture is a creative design process that is based on ethics and design principles. It guides us to mimic the patterns and relationships we find in nature and can be applied to all aspects of human habitation.
