Wildstar Farm and Folk School

Project Type

Rural, Educational

Project Summary

Wildstar Farm and Folk School, forming Spring 2011, is a permaculture market garden and education center, producing food and teaching the skills we need as members of the human species to rediscover our ecological niche. In initial stages of formation.

Project Description

Wildstar Farm and Folk School is a working farm, eco-village and folk school forming to serve the urban Bay Area to bring healthier lifestyles to communities while protecting and preserving our land. We offer our organic and hand made sustainable farm products and meals, as well as sustainable living folk skills workshops, retreats, mentorship programs and youth camps.

The organization has two main branches of operation:  A working farm founded on regenerative permaculture techniques, and a folk school offering classes, retreats, workshops and youth leadership programming focused on sustainable living skills and creative folk arts.

Wildstar Farm and Folk School, an educational farm and retreat center, will promote thriving, ecologically aware, curious, and empowered individuals by providing hands-on learning and work opportunities for building a sustainable future.  A hub of growth, learning and social change, the farm will demonstrate, incubate and spread sustainable living practices with a focus on food systems, through educational workshops, trainings, camps and retreats.  Our innovative approach to sustainability encourages creativity, cooperation, adaptability and compassion, while providing concrete tools for sustainable living in both rural and urban environs.

Legend of Badges

Note: The various badges displayed in people profiles are largely honesty-based self-proclamations by the individuals themselves. There are reporting functions users can use if they know of blatant misrepresentation (for both people and projects). Legitimacy, competency and reputation for all people and projects can be evidenced and/or developed through their providing regular updates on permaculture work they’re involved in, before/after photographs, etc. A spirit of objective nurturing of both people and projects through knowledge/encouragement/inspiration/resource sharing is the aim of the Worldwide Permaculture Network.

PRI Teacher

With the exception of the ‘Member’ who has never taken a PDC, all of the above can apply to become a PRI PDC Teacher. PRI PDC Teachers are those who the PRI recognise, through a vetting board, as determined and competent to teach the full 72-hour course as developed by Permaculture founder Bill Mollison – covering all the topics of The Designers’ Manual as well as possible (i.e. not cherry picking only aspects the teacher feels most interested or competent in). Such teachers also commit to focussing on the design science, and not including subjective spiritual/metaphysical elements. The reason these items are not included in the PDC curriculum is because they are “belief” based. Permaculture Design education concerns itself with teaching good design based on strategies and techniques which are scientifically provable.

PRI PDC Teachers may be given teaching and/or consultancy offerings as they become available as the network grows.
