Ecocity Builders:

We develop and implement policy, design, and educational tools and strategies to build thriving urban centers, based on “access by proximity” and to reverse patterns of sprawl and excessive consumption. We are concerned with city design, planning, building, and operations in an integral way and in relation to the surrounding environment and natural resources of the region, utilizing organic, ecological and whole-systems lessons to actually reverse the negative impacts of climate change, species extinction and the destruction of the biosphere.

Bay Area Green Tours:

Bay Area Green Tours 501 (c) 3 serves as a conduit to solutions for a more sustainable future. We provide educational tours and events that demonstrate the sustainable economy in action, inspire support of local green businesses, and empower people to incorporate environmental responsibility and social justice into their personal and professional lives. Our mission is to turn our attention to green & sustainable solutions that bring to light amazing projects and people that are illuminating a path forward with innovation, passion and solutions.

Local Clean Energy Alliance: 

We are the Bay Area’s foremost membership organization working at the local, state, and national level to promote a clean energy future through the development and democratization of local renewable energy resources. We see these resources as key to addressing climate change, advancing social and racial justice, and building sustainable and resilient communities. 


Wholly H20:

Wholly H2O catalyzes dynamic, informed connections between people and their watersheds that yield proactive and appropriate water management through conservation and reuse. Our watershed-positive educational programs engage Californians in community and citizen science, art, and green infrastructure education. We collaborate with nonprofits, governmental and water agencies, businesses, artists, and individual water users to cultivate citizen scientists who can understand their watersheds and take personal responsibility for their water use, create interactive  educational art, science, and Maker programs and events, provide hands-on training in water harvesting, and support water-wise businesses and policies.

Norcal Resilience Network: 

The NorCal Community Resilience Network  activates and supports community-based and ecological solutions to climate change, economic instability and social inequity toward a Just Transition away from fossil fuels. Our work increases capacity for grassroots projects and programs, builds solidarity across divides of race, class, sector and region, and broadens support for the Northern California community resilience movement as a whole.

San Francisco Permaculture Guild: 

Permaculture is the harmonious integration of landscape and people. Permaculture, being bounded by the ethics of care of people, care of earth and reinvestment of surplus, can provide food, energy, shelter, and other material and non-material needs in a sustainable way. The specific purpose of the SF Permaculture Guild is to support a local community of those interested in permaculture by producing educational and social events, enabling permaculture projects and providing opportunities to exchange information related to permaculture design.

Urban Permaculture Institute of San Francisco:

Permaculture Trainings With Kevin Bayuk & David Cody Register Here
This training offers the opportunity to develop professional skills and provides valuable education to enhance your current vocation, prepare you for your next venture and give you inspiration about solutions that you can implement in your life at home. It is one of the few permaculture design trainings that match the schedule and tuition to the busy lives of urban professionals and full-time students. It is also a great way to meet and connect deeply with like-minded individuals that share your values.

Through a mix of classroom discussion time, small group work and hands-on activities, we will explore methods of designing and establishing regenerative communities and economies. We visit and participate at several permaculture projects here in San Francisco and the Bay Area, observing and interacting with Permaculture principles in practice.We start with the standardized Permaculture curriculum and add onto it insights and strategies for applying Permaculture to the urban setting.
