(Re)Introduce Ourselves at the Homesteader Forum

Hey Homesteaders! Let's meetup at the inaugural Homesteader Forum! The Homesteader Forum is meant to be a regular occurring Meetup event where us Homesteaders can sit down, relax, and talk about the subjects we love. You can bring a friend, share a bottle or a plate, or just bring your curiosity and enthusiasm. We'll begin the gathering with casual introductions and enjoy some individual reports from member Homesteads. Then we'll move on to ideas about what we can possibly do as a group together that involves more fun and learning. Then we'll conclude. We welcome all ages and levels of experience and hope everyone can get something out of it. If you want to attend but can't make it on the scheduled date drop us a line and maybe we can all agree on a better time and date.

[Note about the place...

Newark. Yes. Newark. I've been truly honored to call it my home for over 2 years. If you happen to not be well acquainted, it is New Jersey's largest city and cultural capitol. It has a lot of good things happening there and also some bad. Please let me assure you that my building, my street, and my neighborhood covering 4 square miles is safe for ALL visitors. Never have I been told of anyone having issues with personal safety where I live. If you do have concerns please email me and I promise to address them honestly and not take any offense. ]

    Well, it was a small but select group... just me and Zach! But we had a good and far-ranging discussion, did a little bit of brainstorming, and I'm really looking forward to meeting more folks from the group. Zach's loft is AWESOME and a great place for a meetup!

    Looking forward to this on Wed, does anybody need a ride from Elizabeth?

    Love that you've taken over the group. Unfortunately, because I work in North Brunswick, there is no way I can make 7pm meetings in Newark on Wednesdays. Hope to attend other events in the future. Good luck!

      Thanks Cindy. We'll move the dates around for this regularly played event until we find the sweet spot.

    Sounds wonderful. I'm just starting out growing my own food on a tiny city-type lot, but I am interested in learning more, especially if folks have tried vermiculture (my latest experiment). See you all then!

    I want to attend if my health cooperates. What's the parking like there?

      Hi Emily. Thanks for your interest. Parking is usually available on the street in front of the building without problem. Hope you can join us. Be well...
