We’re Looking for Farmland!

Santa Cruz Permaculture is seeking to lease or purchase farmland to expand our programs. We’re looking for a site as close to Santa Cruz as possible – no more than 30m drive from downtown Santa Cruz and 60m drive from downtown San Jose. Minimally we’re looking for 1 acre of flat & sunny land (more is better!), a good well, and the ability for our students to come and go daily. Please email Dave Shaw at or call 831-216-8208.

About Santa Cruz Permaculture

Santa Cruz Permaculture, founded in 2016, offers sustainability related courses, land use consultation, and seasonal hoshigaki dried persimmons.

Pictured above: We're inspired by Singing Frogs Farm in Sebastopol, CA - a hand-scale, no-till operation on 3 acres.

Our courses & services are still happening thru a mix of on-site and on-line learning.
