Lets form private, NON MEETUP groups for Permaculture, Living-Off-Grid, Hunt County Ecovillage, or others. We can plan to get together as often as we wish to explore subjects we need and/or want to know more about. I know free places to meet around Greenville but maybe even further east or west if interest is there.
PERMACULTURE: Permaculture is pretty much a lifetime study group in itself so lets form a group that goes into Permaculture in depth! Knowledge of starting a food forest, drought-proofing land, growing perennial foods instead of annuals as well as “stacking and packing” food crops into small spaces will benefit anyone, even those of us who think we already “know it all.”
LIVING-OFF-GRID: Most of us would love to say good-bye to utility bills forever. It’s really not that difficult but you have to make it happen yourself with both knowledge and action. Some of it can be done with group buying like an energy co-op that buys together to save money--or maybe with group “barn-raising” type actions. How about the Solar-Panel-of-the-Month Co-op or slapping some cement on wire forms to store rainwater cheaply and safely? A group can make living-off-grid a reality rather than a dream.
Anything else you want a group for???
I am starting an ECOVILLAGE group later in August for the Hunt County land I am buying.
FYI: All organizers pay meetup $144 annually for the “privilege” of having these groups. Frankly, that gets old and so does the time spent putting these meetup events on the internet. Private groups would be better.
