A guide to help you and your community become more resilient by making better, more sustainable decisions in your neighborhoods. Featured on Los Angeles Magazine for Earth Month.
Many people are increasingly concerned about climate change and feel overwhelmed with how their everyday decisions impact the environment. The Urban Farmers' Almanac is for any LA resident (and expanding) who wants to live more sustainably in an urban setting, but not sure where to start. From how we eat to how we travel to how we live, this guide provides tips and alternatives to make our transition to a sustainable lifestyle fun and easy.

We hosted an interactive workshop at Climate Designers' conference covering the building blocks of how we created this guide. We created this toolkit providing a framework for anyone interested in building their own sustainable guide for their cities/communities. The toolkit includes our initial research and surveying, writing, branding, design, and distribution. Cities like Oakland, North Carolina, Oklahoma City, Seattle and New Jersey are now building their own Almanac!
The almanac is now available online for free and for print order on She Grows Cities. It was featured on LA Magazine on Earth Day 2021, and the print edition helped:
