The Chico Permaculture Guild (CPG) is an Education Program of Earthshed Solutions. Earthshed Solutions is a local 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in July 2015 by actively engaged CPG members. We took the next step in creating an educational organization dedicated to empowering our community with the skills necessary to be responsible stewards of the Earth.
The CPG was formed in 2009 by a small group of permaculture designers whose aim was to gather like minded people together to learn and practice permaculture. The CPG went through a transition in 2015 becoming an education program of the nonprofit organization, Earthshed Solutions. Earthshed Solutions’ mission is to teach and empower people through educational programs and projects that promote ethical decision making and responsible stewardship of Earth’s resources.
The primary objective of the Chico Permaculture Guild is to facilitate the outreach of permaculture education at NO COST placing permaculture knowledge and skills directly into the hands of our community.
We gather on a regular basis at the Chico Library for educational topics and discussions, a potluck and share the surplus swap. We also facilitate Earthshed PermaBlitzes. Learn more about what a PermaBlitz is here.
