Mission & Roots


Earthshed Solutions’ mission is to teach and empower people through educational programs and projects that promote ethical decision making and responsible stewardship of Earth’s resources.

Our goals are to educate our community about regenerative design skills for food production, soil fertility, energy efficiency and water conservation. We aim to empower people to make ethical decisions with regard to our natural environment and our society in order to facilitate the creation of a more resilient future.


The Chico Permaculture Guild (CPG) is the original group from which Earthshed Solutions grew. The CPG was formed in 2009 by a small group of permaculture designers whose aim was to gather like minded people together to learn and practice permaculture.

In keeping with this same purpose the CPG underwent a transition becoming an Education Program of Earthshed Solutions. As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization we are able to bring to our community more educational opportunities and hands-on experiences learning how to live in tune with our natural world while providing for the needs of our community.
