How did you learn about the concept of permaculture?

I had read a bit here & there, but became more intrigued when heard some discussion about it at a Master Gardeners Meeting. I attended a weekend intro given by Portland permaculture & was hooked - it so well integrates many aspects of our values & lifestyle. I completed a PCD program last winter & am attending another this summer.

How did you find out about this group?

Local newspaper - advertising a workshop

What do you hope to learn from this group?

I am especially interested in furthering my understanding of plant communities, polycultures, forest gardening We have some skills we could share with others & have projects coming up that could be workshop opportunities on natural construction methods - site design, straw, plaster, cob, rocket stoves, radiant heat, etc

Do you have skills you would like to share/teach here?

My husband & I moved to our farm in South Berwick Maine in '95 & built our passive solar, off grid home. I have been an advocate of organic farming methods since the '80s & am a dedicated environmentalist.
