  • Tend space with friends in a community garden
  • Save seeds, propagate perennials or annual starts to share with others
  • Each one, teach one — what skills do you have that you can share with others?
  • Get the kids involved — they’re the ones inheriting the earth
  • Connect with your elders to learn the wisdom of simpler times—trade labor for knowledge 
  • Organize a Permablitz or work PARTY — get your friends together to knock out a project and then celebrate!
