Planet Drum Foundation's mission is to promote awareness of sustainable strategies for human inhabitation of the earth based on the bioregions where people live. We seek to enhance the intimate connection with life-places by spreading the ideas and activities of "living in place" through publications, workshops, formal curricula, and hands-on demonstration projects. This work is motivated by our vision of a truly sustainable world in which humans are harmonious and respectful of the natural environment.
Planet Drum Foundation (PDF) is a 501(c)(3) ecological educational nonprofit organization founded in 1973. PDF developed the bioregional philosphy as a proactive tool for promoting urban sustainability. A bioregion is defined as a geographical area with coherent and interconnected plant and animal communities, and other natural characteristics (often defined by a watershed) and the cultural values that human inhabitants develop for living in harmony with these natural systems.
