We’ve been very excited to be visiting with Judy Goldhaft at the Planet Drum foundation in San Francisco. Planet Drum Foundation was founded in San Francisco, CA in 1973, and with an association of community activists and ecologists worked to develop the concept of a bioregion, from which the Cascadia movement grew out of in the 1980’s. Planet Drum works to research, promote and disseminate information about bioregionalism, a grassroots approach to ecology that emphasizes sustainability, community self-determination and regional self-reliance.
Peter Berg was a social revolutionary thinker, writer, ecologist, environmental activist and founder of Planet Drum Foundation who passed away at died on July 28, 2011
It’s been an absolute treat to talk with Judy about the history of Planet Drum, and to be able to read and learn about the more than 45 years that they have been active. She’s loaded us up with a huge stack of early Raise the Stakes newsletters and other wonderful proceedings. We are excited to bring back some of this knowledge and to scan, share and incorporate this more strongly into our organizing work in Seattle and elsewhere.
