Sustainable Solano

Nurturing Initiatives for the Good of the Whole

What does Sustainable Solano do?

We are a grassroots, countywide movement uniting people through work that aims to serve the future of Solano County, to promote ecologically regenerative, economically and socially just communities in a world that works for everyone. Sustainable Solano has grown out of decades of dedicated community work that started with community gardens and has grown to include an emphasis on creating sustainable, regenerative environments, community capacity building, supporting local food systems and building youth leadership and workforce skills for a better future.

Join Sustainable Solano’s Permaculture Design Certificate program, starting this January in Benicia! Details here.
