“Kindred Quest is an opportunity to learn from our human past: to reconnect with the earth, with community, with family, with tribe, to enrich our roots, deepen our interconnection, and strengthen our bonds.” - Jonah Haas, Lucidity Co-Founder

Lucidity will be hosting the educational Permaculture Action Course inspired by the work of permaculture designers and educators within the Lucidity Family. From Monday, April 6, 2015 to Thursday, April 9, 2015 at Santa Ynez’s Live Oak Campground, ecological designer Erik Hjermstad, creator of CobFest, community organizer Ryan Rising, Certified Teacher of Permaculture Loren Luyendyk, architect Ray Cirino and Art Ludwig, author of Water Storage and Create an Oasis with Greywater, will give a crash course in hands-on, systems-based techniques to help build and promote ecological living. This three-day course is a practical permaculture education and community building intensive, including: an Introduction to the Permaculture Design Process, Rainwater Harvesting and Earthworks, Natural Building and Appropriate Technology, Regenerative Tools and Techniques, Permaculture Gardening and Food Forestry, Soils and Composting, Applying Ecological Principles, Social Permaculture and Community Organizing Methods.
This intensive is followed by a Community Action Day on April 9th hosted by performance artist and social ecopreneur, The Polish Ambassador, to further advance the production company’s core values of communal reciprocity and environmental responsibility. Permaculture Action Course participants are then invited to engage and assist an open-to-the-public volunteer force to transform 3 or 4 sites in Santa Barbara and Goleta for the benefit the local community.
Lucidity, set from April 10-12th, released its full lineup for its upcoming 2015 Festival, Kindred Quest and it’s full of multi-genre goodness. Elephant Revival brings its beautiful combination of thoughtful lyrics and musings blended effortlessly into their Folk and Americana based musical sensibilities on the Alive stage. Thriftworks’ signature style of loose beat structure and “Flylo-esque” arrangement style energizes the Lucid Stage with variety. Lineup also includes artists like Defunk, Ayla Nereo, David Starfire, Wildlight and The Human Experience, to name a few.
The theme of Lucidity Festival 2015 is Kindred Quest, which poses the question, “How do we live in this world in right relationship with ourselves, each other and the planet?”
As Lucidity Marketing Director and Co-Founder Jonah Haas states, “Kindred Quest is an opportunity to learn from our human past: to reconnect with the earth, with community, with family, with tribe, to enrich our roots, deepen our interconnection, and strengthen our bonds.”
