PERMACULTURE is a system of agricultural and social design principles centered around simulating or directly utilizing the patterns and features observed in natural ecosystems. The foundation is centered around three core principles. 1. Care for Earth 2. Care for People 3. Sharing Abundance / Care for the Future - we will focus on how these apply in an urban setting.


THE LUNCH will be crafted by LA Pastoral. Owned and operated by Stephani Cook, LA Pastoral is Los Angeles' eco-friendly personal chef.

• Wild Mushroom Banh Mi, Daikon, Carrots, Miso Spread
