Permaculture Action Day with Burning Man Project

Leave a Positive Trace!

In conjunction with a global day of action to leave a positive trace - a call-out to the Burning Man community around the world to act on the principles of Participation and Communal Effort on this solstice anniversary of the first Burning Man in 1986.

Hoover Elementary School hosts one of the most immersive and ecologically designed school gardens in the Bay Area. For the last three years, kindergarten through 5th grade students have had the joy of play and class time in this nature-based learning environment—caring for the chickens, saving seeds, identifying edible and medicinal plants, building soil, and crafting.

Join Burning Man Community Events, Burners Without Borders, Permaculture Action Network, and a Bay Area network of facilitators and artists for a day of music, workshops, food, performances, with hands-on projects.
