Eco Ecuador is an ongoing project to collaborate with an Ecuadorian community and help
create a sustainable local ecology. We have been working on this eco-city project since 1999.
The interactive Green City Calendar is a weekly-updated resource
to help people find environmental volunteer options and greening projects in the San
Francisco Bay Area. Through the variety of hands-on ecosystem restorative work, bike
rides, hikes, farmer's markets, classes, workshops, and celebrations listed in this
calendar, we can build a symbiotic balance between humanity and the planet, and promote
sustainable urban living. Send listings of ecological/sustainable volunteer opportunities or

Arastradero Wildflower Planting Project
Planet Drum is supporting a native grasslands restoration experiment that
uses native bunchgrass straw to kill winter sprouting weeds, and then plants
seedlings of California poppies that should bloom and continue to grow for
many years. This experiment is being carried out in Palo Alto, CA by Craig
Dremann, co-owner of The Reveg Edge, in Redwood City, CA who has been
Inventing native grasslands restoration technologies since 1972. Planet Drum
will act as the fiscal sponsor for the project by receiving and managing
tax-deductible donations to fund this California poppy experiment. A test
plot was planted in February, 2013.
Descriptions of the project as well as photos and paintings of it can be
