NEW! Call-out to the Community: Come Share Skills & Participate
Permaculture Week (May 16th-21st)
The folks from Rebel! Rebuild! Rewild! are planning a Permaculture Week to be hosted on a 200-acre organic farm on Algonquin Territory in Wakefield, Quebec. People are welcomed to attend for as long as they want, and share skills they have.

Rebel! Rebuild! Rewild! (June 1st-5th)
R!R!R! takes place on the same farm. It focuses on: “bringing together the two camps of the environmental movement – one which focuses on resistance to industry and one which focuses on creative solutions to the world’s problems. We believe both approaches are absolutely vital. We would like to see more collaboration and more interconnectivity between folks belonging to these two camps.”
