National Bioneers Conference: Food System Resilience from Homestead to Community and Beyond

In this sustainability tour and skill-building workshop led by Trathen Heckman of Daily Acts, Naomi Starkman of the award-winning Civil Eats, with new farmer and Farm Guild organizer Evan Wiig, we will learn Permaculture skills and tour successful, mature models of local sustainability, including: gray water systems, community gardens, edible landscapes, food forests, water harvesting earthworks, and rain gardens.

Discover strategies to: transform your backyard as the beginning of transforming your neighborhood, municipality, and region; build leadership and self-reliance in your community; promote family and community food security and a local food economy; organize your community; work with municipal government as an ally; and foster new farmer networks.
