 Willits is at a crossroads, facing challenges post-Bypass, renewing downtown, cannabis legalization, the need for good jobs and housing, and more.

 WELL (a non-profit, volunteer organization since 2004) works for an enduring local economy that provides health and security for our community. We educate, undertake projects, and work with other groups on issues including: Local Food; Water & Energy Conservation; Human & Environmental Health; and Supporting Local Enterprise.

In 2018, for example, our events included a Pollinator Presentation, a tour of Little Lake Valley mitigation lands, co-sponsoring a Candidates Forum, and an Entrepreneurs Forum.

PAINT THE TOWN has been a new and exciting WELL project in 2018, spawned from ideas at the Entrepreneurs Forum. We’ve created color and artwork at fire hydrants, trash receptacles, the (formerly unsightly) concrete K-rails at Main & W. Commercial Street, and in some downtown vacant storefronts. The project has inspired artists, volunteers, residents, businesses and visitors. We plan more in 2019!

WELL membership is a small but mighty investment in our community and ongoing localization efforts. Benefits also include our bi-monthly newsletters, periodic email updates, and free entry to special WELL events.


You can send a check payable to WELL, P.O. Box 42, Willits, CA 95490 or join via Paypal. Membership is sliding scale $20-35 individual or $35-50 family for the year. Of course, extra donations (tax-deductible) are always welcome!

Yours for a thriving future for our community,  

WELL Coordinating Committee: Paul Jacobson, Tim Rice, Laura Toomey Rowland, Madge Strong and Lyn Talkovsky
