Paradise Community Guilds represents the spirit of community-building. We are actively engaged in helping build Paradise anew, and our members are exploring partnerships with other organizations in the areas of permaculture and green building techniques, bringing more awareness to the long range implications of climate change to our community, encouraging a plan to design Paradise as a destination for arts, cultural enrichment and education.
Our vision is a citizenry working together to maximize the quality of life in our community. Our Mission is to improve the quality of life in our community by empowering and engaging our fellow citizens for the common good.
Our goal is to bring communities together by providing place to share our common voice, events, ideas, and services. The Lotus Guide Magazine compiles information about mind, body and spiritual health into a free publication available throughout the North Valley. And we've been doing it for 15+ years; pursuing our passion and collaborating,
We hope our newly opened headquarters in Paradise can serve as a springboard for Rebuilding of Paradise. Be sure to drop in, we are open Tues/Wed/Thurs from 11am-4pm, other days and times by appointment.
The Camp Fire Zone Project is designed by citizens to help citizens. In their roles as zone captains, individuals meet regularly to share rebuilding questions, resources, and needs specific to their community. Zone Captains then report back to their community/council leaders with updates and information or requests. From Paradise to Concow to Stirling City (and everywhere in between) we are a group of organized individuals working together to unite as one non-political voice, the system is unique by grouping a large number of people together with a unified voice to achieve a common goal of rebuilding their neighborhood/solving issues and being able to save a lot of time and money. Each zone has its own captain, to find your zone or learn more please contact us.
The Paradise Revival Festival celebrates the resiliency of our community. It is an opportunity to heal together through music, art, workshops, and self expression. Part music festival, part talent show, part community-day-of-action; we hope this festival will remind us who we are as a community. Through this celebration we honor our journey and acknowledged our strength.
The Gold Nugget Museum's mission has been to preserve and protect the Ridge heritage through the collection and display of local artifacts, and with community education programs. Groundbreaking celebrations for the Gold Nugget Museum were kicked off in 1978 by Miss Gold Nugget 1977, and the official Grand Opening Celebration began with a ribbon cutting by the 1980 Gold Nugget Queen on April 23, 1981.
The Gold Nugget Museum was destroyed by the Camp Fire on November 8, 2018.
While we rebuild, the Depot Museum will be our services location at 5570 Black Olive Drive, Paradise, CA in the Paradise Community Park.
