For the fifth year in a row we mobilize the energy of the SONIC BLOOM Festival Community into the nearby town of Walsenburg where District O.N.E. is Organizing New Economy.

Join the Action

“Local food is the first economy of any society.” –

This year, we expand the District ONE project beyond its farms and pay-what-you-can farm-to-table restaurant to the BUS.

The BUS – Building United Society – is a late 1800s school building being converted into a place where food and housing is provided in reciprocity for work on the District ONE Farms growing organic, nutrient-rich food for the community.

Over the last 4 years we’ve watched the farms grow with trees, greenhouses, edible perennials, composting systems, murals, rainwater catchment, medicinal herbs, earthworks, mushrooms, vegetables, and other useful plants. This year, join us to demonstrate that permaculture is not just about farms and gardens – it’s about housing, community, economy, energy, the built environment, and how we organize our lives in relationship to the ecosystems around us and one another.

We need your support for this one! Have electrical skills? Construction tools? Building materials? Paint for murals? Get in touch!

We’ll be mounting and installing solar, fixing plumbing, constructing a chicken coop, building a greenhouse, painting stairs, planting, repairing, and beautifying.

Bring a potluck to add to the lunch spread. Wear close toed shoes. Bring a refillable water bottle, and even dishware if you like. We’ll wrap up just in time to guarantee you quick and easeful entry to festival – we’ve got you covered!
