Organic Hammer believes that taking a step toward a sustainable future begins at home.  Small changes such as harvesting water, composting food waste and growing food can have a huge impact on a family's health and wellbeing.  We teach practical, environmental solutions at the household and community level in a fun, hands- on way. 

It is our hope that by providing both the knowledge AND supplies to get started on the path of sustainability, people will feel inspired and ready to begin creating a healthier more abundant future for all of Southern California.  We're in it together!
