Reports and Dispatches from the Field

Eco Ecuador

Eco Ecuador is an ongoing project to collaborate with an Ecuadorian community and help create a sustainable local ecology. We have been working on this eco-city project since 1999.

Olympic Actions

We first worked with Guard Fox Watch at the Nagano Winter Olympics in 1998. Subsequently, we developed guidelines for the Salt Lake City Winter Olympics in 2002 and helped organize a campaign to  develop eco-consciousness in their planning. We  monitored the 2006 Winter Olympic Games in Turin, Italy and continue with the 2010 Vancouver, Canada Olympics.

Green City Calendar

The interactive Green City Calendar is a weekly-updated resource to help people find environmental volunteer options and greening projects in the San Francisco Bay Area. Through the variety of hands-on ecosystem restorative work, bike rides, hikes, farmer's markets, classes, workshops, and celebrations listed in this calendar, we can build a symbiotic balance between humanity and the planet, and promote sustainable urban living.  Send listings of ecological/sustainable volunteer opportunities or events (San Francisco Bay Area only) to: Green City Calendar,  P.O. Box 31251,San Francisco, CA 94131, Shasta Bioregion or email them to: mail@planetdrum.org or fax them to: 415-285-6563.
