About the Circle of Collaborators

Here in Northern California, we are blessed with an abundance of community groups working to realize the sustainable future we need. Our vision is to create a regional hub for Solutionaries in Northern California - our Circle of Collaborators - community activists, businesses and grassroots organizations who are turning despair into action through people-powered, nature-inspired, and community-based solutions.   

From time banks to community gardens, aquaponics businesses to emergency preparedness efforts, this regional hub will support collaboration between groups, honors the work of organizations large and small, offer strategies for collective impact and collaboration for a more resilient and just world.
