Good Shepherds Land Management
Nomadic Operation - Location TBA
On Mammalia Monday, meet the flora and fauna of Southern California as we learn the art and science of regenerative grazing! Goats and sheep are excellent for ecological fire prevention, soil health, and the human spirit.
North Park/Normal Heights
On Tell-Me Tuesday we visit a backyard sanctuary filled with healing plants, crystals, fairy gnomes, stories, songs, and drums. We'll take soil samples, learn about composting, and begin to weave a new narrative about the health of our planet.
Paradise Found II
On Wormy Wednesday, join us at Paradise Found's G-Street location, where we'll learn about urban ecosystem restoration by transforming a small plot of land. We also take a 5-minute walk to help prepare compost with South Bay Sustainable Communities!
San Diego Urban Timber
On Thriving Thursday, discover the beauty flowing through our waste streams; fallen trees are just the beginning! In addition to meeting the chickens and tending the garden, we'll use reclaimed materials to build puppets, props, and other elements to bring our story to life.
Marina View Park, Chula Vista
On Friendly Friday, we take concepts and words off the page and onto our pop-up stage...raising voices for good! This youth-produced showcase takes place in a public park, and includes a community potluck picnic. Neighbors and friends are welcome (no charge).
