Santa Barbara Community Event in Support of the

Location: South Coast Watershed Resource Center

On November 8, 2018, the small town of Paradise, California was destroyed by the devastating Camp Fire, the largest wildfire in California’s history – yes, more massive, but similar to what many other California communities have also experienced in recent years.
Join Santa Barbara Permaculture Network and the Abundant Earth Foundation as they host an evening in support of the Camp Fire Ecosystem Restoration Project, and the very first Ecosystem Restoration Camp to be located in the USA.
With tragedy, comes opportunity! Paradise, California would like to be a model for not only how the land and people can recover, but how to rebuild in balance with nature, and with resilience for the new climate realities of drought, fire, and flood that are facing all communities in California.
Come learn from the community of Paradise’s experiences, and the innovative ideas they have for a different way of responding to tragedy, including an upcoming Paradise Camp Fire Restoration Weekend event April 26-28. Many lessons from the Ecosystem Restoration Camp global movement will be incorporated and shared.
The free Santa Barbara evening event will include film, discussion, pizza & drinks. Matthew Trumm of Treetop Permaculture and coordinator for the Camp Fire Restoration Project, will be available via ZOOM to share and answer questions. Santa Barbara resident Art Ludwig of Oasis Design will share film shorts on fire & earthquake resistant housing, debris flow protection, storm water capture, and designs for sustainable & affordable housing he is currently working on.
The free event takes on Monday April 22, 6-8pm at the South Coast Watershed Resource Center at Arroyo Burro Beach, 981 Cliff Drive, Santa Barbara, CA 93109. For more information, www.sbpermaculture.org, [email protected], 805 962-2571.
