We create beautiful stories. Create your essences, plan and strategize, put into action, and then celebrate. We will go through all of it with you, even the celebrating part (we love to help organize events). Make sure to check out our portfolio and get in touch if you want to work together.

Join us to create a network of permaculture resources using the web. Our team is working to create an online textbook, a permaculture portfolio builder, and a video-based self-empowered course. All of these aspects support and reinforce each other. Tese tools are meant for newcomers to permaculture, as aids in teachings and programs, and for seasoned veterans to review and even find new information. Connect with PermacultureWeb to find out more, to get involved, or to pre-register for these resources ahead of time.
News is evolving. More and more, we get our news right from the source of the action: Livestreams, indigenous groups on the ground, social justice groups, any sources we trust. Source News is a resource in this: When something big happens, we create a page for it and instead of prescribing the news to you, we promote feeds from those that are active on the ground. Source News also does the homework to get the most reliable sources possible, groups that have solid values and integrity, to ensure it is not fake news as well, on the other side of that spectrum. An example of how this worked was with Source News beta test during Standing Rock protests. There were massive rumours around Facebook that there was a raid on the camp. A quick check on Source News showed that none of the major Indigenous nations or activist groups were reporting the raid, and sure enough, within an hour there was another post showing the ‘raid’ as a hoax. Of course, when the real raid came, it was widely commented on by Indigenous Rising Media and others on the ground, and was shown in source news live feeds.
There are many campaigns to save the oldgrowth of British Columbia, and around the world. It is time to unite! SaveOldGrowth.org seeks to bring together all of the current campaigns in BC, and propose a law under the current BC government that will protest the little remaining old growth in perpetuity. In addition, the law proposed by Save Old Growth will look at how old growth that does fall or needs to come down is used: With indigenous nations taking the lead, and managing the use for culture, artisans, musical instruments, and other areas where old growth can give the greatest benefit for the people. Join Save Old Growth.org and lead the unification of these campaigns and create real change towards a sustainable forestry.
UpSchool is a decentalized, self-empowered, self-directed philosophy of study. Collective Space has encountered so many amazing teachers, facilitators, space holders, and creators, that we decided we needed to help bring their teachings to the people! In UpSchool, you choose what you take, you choose where it takes you, you choose your own future. How many times were we told to sit down, be quiet, and listen? Now it is time to stand up, speak up, and be heard as well. It is a balance, an exchange. Look forward to upcoming workshops, art classes, sharing circles, networking, entrepreneurship programs, and much more, all offered through this empowering philosophy. Whether you are at a teaching phase, a learning phase, or both, please get in contact with us.
