Join Sustainable Solano in welcoming back permaculture expert David Shaw for an inspirational, educational, practical and down-to-earth talk about building connections with ourselves, each other, and with nature to inaugurate our Fairfield Sustainable Backyard Program.

He founded Santa Cruz Permaculture and the UC Santa Cruz Common Ground Center, two inter-generational partnerships focused on collective action for justice and sustainability. Additionally, he is the coordinator of the Right Livelihood College, and serves on the World Cafe Community Stewardship Council. In order to meet the challenges of today, he is creating an urban farm and inter-generational learning center that fosters hands-on farm and wilderness skills, social entrepreneurship, conversational leadership, and collective action. He lives happily and humbly on a 2-acre homestead in Santa Cruz.
