This group is a network of Portlanders that support the permaculture lifestyle. We connect in real life for farming and permaculture events to share knowledge, experiences, and resources.
We meet weekly to discuss the many projects we have going on in Portland. People meet other amazing people with survival and thrival skills galore at Bright Neighbor events. We discuss and move projects forward that help relocalize all aspects of life.
We even have a worm farm CSA!
On February 6th, 2010, Portlanders from all 95-neighborhoods will be participating in a massive fruit & nut tree pruning project, followed by grafting branches to root stocks – instantly creating thousands of new food-bearing trees in Portland.
This is a project-under-development, with a committee forming each week at the Bright Neighbor group meeting, as we have teamed up with Portland Peak Oil and Transition PDX. The project is a great neighbor building exercise, helps build local food security, and sequesters carbon right where we live – it’s a 3-in-1 karate kick into peak oil’s ugly face.
Come connect in the real world with your neighbors participating in this project by coming to the project meetings!
