Permaculture Team


The Transition Joshua Tree Permaculture Team Aim:

To learn and practice permaculture principles in a way that is inclusive, harmonious, and inspiring so that we may all transition as a community to a more regenerative, resilient, and earth-connected way of life, both locally and globally.

We gladly welcome new members. Whether you are experienced or a newbie to permaculture, there is a place for you! Our meetings are on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of each month.  Call Dave at (760) 544 3294 or email for meeting location and questions.

We have found that it is very helpful for anyone considering joining Transition to first read Transition Teams General Information and About TJT.
