Foundation was founded in San Francisco, CA in 1973. In association with
community activists and ecologists, Planet Drum(*) developed the concept of a
bioregion. Planet Drum works to research, promote and disseminate
information about bioregionalism, a grassroots approach to ecology that
emphasizes sustainability, community self-determination and regional
self-reliance. Through its projects, publications, speakers, and workshops,
Planet Drum helps start new bioregional groups and encourages local
organizations and individuals to find sustainable ways to live within the
natural confines of bioregions. We believe that people who know and care
about the places where they live will work to maintain and restore them.
