East Bay POSSE Party - Potluck and Permaculture Skillshares

  • Oct 28, 2012 · 2:00 PM
  • This location is no longer available

Come help us celebrate the harvest with our first POSSE in the East bay. We'll be having urban-harvest themed workshops and skillshares at a sustainability-based collective in Fruitvale.

POSSE stands for Potluck-Orientation-Skillshare-Swap-Event and is a great opportunity to meet fellow timebankers, learn something, eat great food, and have fun.

This will be the first of a recurring series of events with different themes and skillshares, so if you can't make it this time, don't worry! We'll be having another one soon enough.


We will be hosting Paul Sheldon of Oakland's "Planting Justice" for a presentation and discussion about Urban Permaculture, Post-Incarceration Reintegration, and Community Fund Raising!!


2:00-3:00  --  Mingle, Potluck, Orientation

3:00-4:00  --  Planting Justice: Urban Permaculture as a Model for                          Post-Incarceration Reintegration

4:30-5:30  --  Intro to Vermiculture (WORMS!!)

    This was an amazing gathering of a small group of people. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because of lessons learned about online-recruiting/invitations. Otherwise, it was awesome! We had Paul Sheldon of Planting for Justice lead a discussion about post-incarceration rituals, fundraising, and other awesome things. Hope that these keep going, with different houses/organizations hosting every time! Let me know if you'd like to host one and need any help :D

    Also: the house is within walking distance of the Fruitvale BART station
    Please think about bringing a favorite harvest-time dish to share!
    We look forward to seeing y'all

    That would be great, Raines!! I was hoping someone would be willing to host the next one. Hopefully we can get a good rotation going!

    Is anyone interested in volunteering for an hour or more at this event? We're still a little low on help.
