JOIN US TO IMAGINE PARADISE...

a place where dwellings, neighborhoods, commons and culture meet all our needs and aspirations.

 

Our purpose is to increase our capability to regenerate Ridge communities with greater harmony and diversity of people, place, and nature.
 

The challenge for our community is to co-create and build together in a way that develops local economies in relationship with natural systems.We will explore how our work interrelates with other Ridge organizations and individuals to revive our community! 

CONVENING:

The sessions are being designed to mirror regenerative and developmental processes. The synergies and interconnectedness of disciplines will be explored, out of which new relationships will emerge.

Join us for the second annual Paradise Revival Festival, which will be free, open to the public, and held entirely online. With the COVID-19 pandemic still a concern, we are taking every precaution to ensure that our community is safe yet still has the opportunity to connect, learn, heal and grow.

2019 FESTIVAL

On October 12, 2019 members of the ridge community gathering in Paradise for a day-long celebration of resilience. It was organized by our community, for our community, and featured musicians, speakers and activists from our community. In this way we honored our shared journey, imagined the the future, and witnessed one another with songs, laughter, tears, and embraces. 

The 2019 Paradise Revival Festival was made possible by the generous contribution of the Paradise Arts Commission- funded through North Valley Community Foundation- and by student volunteers from Chico State University.
