About Santa Cruz Permaculture Guild

The Santa Cruz Permaculture Guild hosts free monthly gatherings for people interested in permaculture to connect, learn, and take action together. Meetings are open to all, and we welcome folks from other counties and regions beyond Santa Cruz to join us!


Each month, meetings start with a potluck* and then break into smaller groups according to participants’ interests, which may include gardening, water use, working to change local laws, organizing work parties at members homes, and more.

*Please bring an ingredients list for your potluck contributions. We will have pens and paper if you forget, but be prepared to share this information so folks with food allergies and dietary needs can participate more easily in the potluck.
