Get Involved[edit | edit source]
Permaculture Action Network is a people-powered organization, and with limited funds over the last few years they have accomplished so much! They are seeking financial support to be able to continue partnering with musicians and artists to put on more Permaculture Action Days with a wider diversity of participants.

History[edit | edit source]
In October 2014, The Polish Ambassador went on tour with a team of permaculture educators and community organizers to bring “Pushing Through the Pavement: A Permaculture Action Tour” to major cities across the United States. Permaculture Action Network hosted 33 Action Days in 33 cities, across 20 different states over a 6 week period. These action days brought out fans from the Polish Ambassador shows to the farm/eco-village/food forest/urban garden to get their hands dirty. Through a focus on community organizing and earth based practices, the tour empowered people with the tools needed to bring about a regenerative way of living.
The Permaculture Action Tour will be connecting a network of local organizations, permaculture groups, sustainability educators, and food growers that can put the principles of permaculture into action through on-the-ground projects and re-skilling. The Polish Ambassador audience members will be encouraged to join “Impact Days” on urban sites following each show that will be immersions focused on sustainability, food justice, ecological education, and regenerative living practices. Along with hard skills like growing food, collecting rainwater, and building structures, the tour will introduce the equally important aspects of social permaculture: how to work in collaborative groups and organize locally, make decisions, and communicate effectively.
