Join the Big Pine Paiute Tribe, Burners Without Borders, Permaculture Action Network, and the Indigenous Farming Project for a Permaculture Action Day on the Road to Burning Man at the Big Pine Paiute Tribal Garden. The garden is a publicly-accessible demonstration project that features permaculture design, perennial & annual plant cultivation, and plants native to the Eastern Sierras.

Everyone is welcome and this event is free to attend!

Join us anytime after 5:30pm on Friday, August 25th when the weekly farmers’ market opens to the community. You are welcome to camp overnight on the land with us, and we will have food, showers, and other hospitality provided. We will work on hands-on projects all day Saturday, August 26th while we share meals and story, listen to live musical performances, and participate in workshops and skillshares.

This permaculture food sovereignty project of the Big Pine Paiute Tribe is located along Highway 395 in Big Pine, CA, at the Big Pine Paiute Tribal Headquarters. We have designed this day to fall on a perfect midpoint for folks traveling to Burning Man’s Black Rock City from the Southwest of the United States, especially Los Angeles and San Diego communities. Leave Friday evening and come camp with us, or leave Saturday morning to come take action with us for a few hours before continuing your drive up to Black Rock City (gates open at 12:01am on Sunday and it’s a 5 hour drive from Big Pine up to Black Rock City).

Action-Based Projects

We will be building a large greenhouse for winter growing and digging rainwater catchment earthworks & swales to catch and store rainwater in the soil.
