Gaia's Garden in Action

I am inviting others to join me over the winter season to re-read (or read for the first time) "Gaia's Garden: A Guide to Home-Scale Permaculture" by Toby Hemenway and to help one another develop designs and steps for implementing them in our own homes. My intent would be to meet a couple of times a month on a Saturday.

    I just bought the book. I'm definitely interested in learning more about how home scale permaculture is down in New England.

      Hi Luke - The plan is to cover the entire book over the course of the winter. We would meet twice a month.

    Is there a set chapter, or chapters, that we should have read in time for the first get together on the 11th? I'm really looking forward to gathering. Happy Holidays to all!
