Spend a fun-filled weekend deep in the high mountain desert of Cuyama, giving and receiving on the edge where Wilderness meets Farm.  Dive into wilderness survival skills like shelter-making, primitive fire techniques, water and wild food harvesting. Prepare to get your hands dirty with a permaculture and sustainable living project on the farm. Round out the day eating great food, sitting by a fire, storytelling, music making, and star gazing.

Quail Springs Permaculture is dedicated to demonstrating and teaching holistic ways of designing human environments, and to facilitating deeper understandings of ourselves and one another through immersive experiences in nature. We believe that lasting ecological health and social harmony can be fostered through emphasizing the connection between people, food, shelter, energy, and water.

The fee includes camping, food, guides, and lots of hands-on experience.
