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.

Visit the Permaculture Team on 

FACEBOOKINSTAGRAM, and YOUTUBE

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 tjtpermacultureteam@gmail.com 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.
