Since camping space is limited, we send a special request to all of our San Diego Permies to consider opening their house/yard (rooms, couch, or tent space) for out-of-town permies. You can charge $ 10-30 and donate part of the income to the Southern California Convergence Funds. Please see under "Forums" for requests/offers of hospitality.

Permaculture Earthworks at Sky Mountain Institute
Increase your knowledge of permaculture earthworks during this hands-on 3 day workshop taught by Paul Wheaton. You will be able to watch a raw San Diego hillside side go through a permaculture design process, from mapping to final construction to planting out of the installations. This will all be done during these 3 days. Currently, an estimated 350,000 gallons of runoff water go down through the property untouched. Some of the earthworks designed and constructed in this class will be placed and designed to alter this erosive overland flow and to maximize water capture and retention in the landscape. Earthworks will be constructed to create cool zones, giving plants a reprieve from the hot summer sun and shielding them from the local winds. The earthworks will be mulched, and the construction of a food forest will take place with the planting of cover crops, fruit trees, and to support species trees. Course participants will have the opportunity for hands-on participation and to contribute during the design process and work on all of the earthworks.
