Ten Day Village Building Convergence Rocks Small Town Sebastopol

Participants in the ambitious ten-day First Annual Sebastopol Village Building Convergence (VBC) painted murals on streets in this small Northern California town and filled the Grange Hall, the Permaculture Skills Center, and other sites from September 12 to 21.

Save a drop, save gallons, and save money too! Choose this smart perk (or select from loads of others) while making Transition Streets (a carbon-reduction, water-saving, community-building project) a reality in your city or town.
