How did you learn about the concept of Permaculture and/or this group?

I heard a lecture in Concord by Bill Mollison back in the early 80's detailing his work in Australia. It made a lot of sense to me so I incorporated some of the principals into my farming activity. Since then I've been too busy to do much studying until recently. I was looking for an opportunity to meet other people pursuing low impact farming and heard about the seacoast permaculture group. And now, there is a group a lot closer to the farm!

What do you hope to experience with this group?

Nothing beats experience. I'm hoping to learn from the experience of other farmers & gardeners who are implementing elements of the permaculture concepts. In the same spirit, I'm glad to share my successes and failures!

Introduction

I've been farming in Dunbarton since 1970 with the objective of supplying most of the vegetables for the family during the summer. Currently I'm volunteering at a 4-H teaching garden to introduce inner city children to the joys of the garden!

What Ken K. is saying about this Meetup Group

A lot of energy, knowledge, and potential. It will be interesting to see if some of the ideas about having sub focus groups can be implemented to help facilitate a sense of community within specific interest areas. This might encourage active participation by those who currently have a marginal interest and are not seeing the "hook" to get themselves involved.
