We host many work parties at a community-based garden or farm in the East Bay. Come join us! The parties are family-friendly and guaranteed fun. We also partner with and support other related events.

  • Resilient Hubs Initiative Call

     

    Learn about the NorCal Resilience Network's Resilient Hubs Initiative, creating a network of homes, schools and neighborhood centers that are “ready for anything” - better prepared for natural disasters, climate change and other stresses in our community.

    During the call, we will introduce the model and share our pilot project successes, and then ask for feedback about the project, from the site criteria to the marketing and funding.

    ABOUT THE PROGRAM:  Install a rainwater catchment system you’ve always wanted, to prepare for a drought? Check. Prepare your home for “The Big Earthquake”? Check. Meet the neighbors you’ve always wanted to talk with? Check.  “Resilient Hubs” is an exciting new model that uses a community-based approach to helps transform our homes and neighborhoods into vibrant, regenerative places. 

    Why Resilient Hubs? There are surprisingly few environmental groups that integrate climate mitigation with climate adaptation through community-based responses that adapt to our changing climate while breaking down the social barriers that often tear us apart. We focus on building both community and resiliency by bring people together to work on small-scale, people-powered projects, from gardens to greywater systems.

    You’re invited to join Shareable, Pro Arts Gallery and Commons, and the NorCal Resilience Network for a film, panel and discussion to explore what community-led resilience and disaster response/recovery could look like in the Bay Area and beyond.

    Before the conversation, we’ll start off the evening with the world premier of Shareable’s first documentary film “The Response: How Puerto Rico is returning power to the people.” This inside view into the initial response and long term disaster recovery and community organizing work will provide a glimpse of what actions we can take now to create more resilient communities right now and how we can be prepared for if/when disaster strikes.  

    We are hosting a pre-event Happy Hour and offering complimentary passes to this event for all new Circle of Collaborators members! Please email us directly if you are interested in receiving one, or if you are unsure about your membership status.

    More information can be found on the Eventbrite page.
