8th & Bee Homestead and Resilience Guild
Tiffany Renée & Jaimey Walking Bear
4 8th Street, Petaluma, CA 94952
8th & Bee Homestead and Resilience Guild is a Petaluma homesteading project from Tiffany Renée and Jaimey Walking Bear. Through curated and community contributed content, virtual events, and visuals, our mission is to provide you with practical, bite-sized solutions and inspiration to grow food, medicine, build soil and self-resiliency. We offer tours of the homestead to get a sense of urban farming on a small scale (1/8 acre). Through conversations with experts in online conferences and webinars, we explore topics ranging from food forests and permaculture to carbon farming, fibershed, beekeeping, and more. Come explore our growing homestead!
