Event description
We will be working with a team of four homeowners to begin transforming their street into an environmentally and socially resilient hub.

About this Event

Join us in creating our first Resilient Neighborhood in Vallejo!

For the first time, we will be working with a team of four homeowners to begin transforming their street into an environmentally and socially resilient community hub. This project will treat the homes as part of the same ecosystem, linking them together through shared services and planned diversity, like providing shade in communal areas and producing a varied supply of food. Over time, this project plans to work with this established team to bring additional neighbors and community organizations into the hub as part of a larger movement to transform our cities into more regenerative, equitable and resilient places to live.

As we continue to build our first Resilient Neighborhood, this day will include workshops on different elements at two homes for ideas participants can bring back to their own homes:

We will be planting a large understory of plants including a native alternative to lawn and a perennial, edible vine. 

See this custom design manifest into reality. 

Topics Covered:

  • We will be planting a large understory of plants including a native alternative to lawn and a perennial, edible vine. See this custom design manifest into reality.
  • Planting a community of plants with multiple functions that support a healthy, diverse ecosystem.
  • Surface drip irrigation installation: Adding irrigation for young plants and water conservation. 
  • Covering the food forest with free woodchips (mulch) to prevent water evaporation and improve soil health.

This final day we will be passing out free give-aways courtesy of the Solano County Water agency including water saving idea playing cards, garden hose timers and moisture meters.

A healthy lunch will be provided during each installation date. Please bring hats, gloves, reusable water bottle and sunblock.
