A Permaculture Approach to Sustainable Development in Puerto RIco

Join the Greater Newburyport Edible Garden Group and Northshore Permaculture Meetup for an evening with JD Hutchison-Maxwell, a West Newbury native, and assistant farm manager at New Harmony Farm of West Newbury and Newbury.

JD will be sharing his experiences working with Plenitud Iniciativas Eco-educativas (Plenitud Eco-Educational Initiatives), a non-profit organization located in Las Marias, PR, that supports individuals and communities in sustainable development by providing training, demonstrations and services in organic farming, bio-construction, and other sustainable permaculture practices. He worked 20 months at the newly forming Plenitud as a designer, builder, landscaper, teacher, farmer and much more. He will return to continue work at Plenitud this winter.

JD is a graduate of Boston University with a major in Human Geography and is deeply concerned about the challenge of climate change and our society’s over-consumption. He has decided to focus his energy in the area of food and agriculture, because he feels food is the most direct link that people have to the environment; that it is a good place to do hands on work to stimulate people to think about their use of resources and the importance of a healthy relationship with the planet.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
