New Jersey’s transformative festival called PermaJam has returned for its second year and will be held at Toye Recreation Campground in Sussex, NJ from Saturday July 1st through Tuesday July 4th. PermaJam is a family-friendly event geared towards community-building with a large focus on permaculture farming. Workshops in permaculture, yoga, art and much more will take place during the day and the evenings will feature live music. The grounds are host to beautiful hiking trails, a swimming lake, and tent and trailer hook ups are available at a nominal fee. 

        The music line-up features over 30 musical performances including international touring acts The Nth Power and Moon Hooch and returning artists Wild Moon, Happy Accident and Incus.

        Over a dozen yoga instructors will be teaching, including Loretta Turner of Powerflow Yoga, Jason Zagaro of Flow Yoga in Ho-Ho-Kus, Kimie Mittman leading Kids Yoga, and more.

        More than 30 workshops will be held daily including “Oily Veteran” Michelle Terreri on the benefits of essential oils, in addition to professional permaculture designer and educator Robyn Mello, who is the Orchard Gleaning Director for The Philadelphia Orchard Project and owner of Edenspore, LLC. Eric Fuchs-Stengel who is the founder of MEVO, one of the most excellent youth lead environmental groups in Northern NJ will be presenting on beekeeping and permaculture.
