About David Shaw

David Shaw is an educator, facilitator, ecological designer, farmer, and musician living in Santa Cruz, California. His focus is building connections - with ourselves, with each other, and with nature.

David has been teaching agroecology and sustainable living at UC Santa Cruz since 2004, and in 2012 founded the UCSC Common Ground Center, offering a suite of programs for social justice, economic resilience, and ecological sustainability. He founded Santa Cruz Permaculture in 2016 in order to work with the Santa Cruz community more broadly. Additionally, he works for the Regenerative Design Institute as an instructor for their 4 Seasons Permaculture Design Certificate Course, and is a member of the global World Cafe Stewardship Council, a group dedicated to hosting inter-generational dialogue on questions that matter. David holds a MS in Integrative Eco Social Design from Gaia University, and continues his community based action-research on the theory and practice of social justice and sustainability.

In order to meet the challenges of today, he is creating an urban farm and inter-generational learning center that fosters hands-on farm and wilderness skills, cultural competence, entrepreneurial spirit, conversational leadership, and collective action. He lives happily and humbly on a 2-acre homestead in Santa Cruz.
