Join us in Redwood Valley to plant acorns and bring back the oaks in areas that burned in the Redwood Complex.
We look forward to spending a week on the land with a group of high school students from Marin Academy High in San Rafael, CA.
Students will spend the week immersed in the land and working with their hands - helping out on our organic farm, cooking farm-fresh meals, hiking, crafting, and slowing down to be with the natural world.
This will be our 5th year hosting them at the Oak Granary and we are excited to have them back!
Come and celebrate the mighty oaks of Northern California! We will engage in and deepen our reciprocal relationship with these native trees through a two-fold process: learning to care for the oaks and the ecosystem they are a part of, and celebrating their gifts through the making of crafts and an acorn cook off!
Update on 10/10/17:
With heavy hearts, we have decided to cancel this weekend’s event. The Potter / Redwood Complex wildfire is still raging in our neighborhood, and while the land and residents of the Oak Granary are faring well so far, many of our extended community have been devastated, and we’re not in the clear yet.
We look forward to helping our community rebuild, and when the time is right, celebrate the little valley we love and call home. Stay tuned for more.
With love and prayers for the well-being of all the life who makes in a home in our neck of the woods,
The Oak Granary Team

In our final week, campers become champions for the earth through exploration of local ecology and learning empowering ancestral skills. Campers will protect plants and animals by building habitat and oak tree structures. Young defenders will learn to care for the land and its inhabitants through play and exploration.
