The Meetup.com platform served us well when it was created back in the Fall of 2009 to help coordinate and organize the 2010 Upstate NY Permaculture Gathering here in Syracuse. Since that time however, general usage from members has been very small, and the cost to administer the site in fees has not diminished. In addition, it's more work for those behind the scenes here to have an additional website location to maintain.
So you probably realize where this message is going. Our Meetup.com account will not be renewed when it is expired on November 16.
Members will be migrated to the Alchemicalnursery.org website E-newsletter for news and photos; and the Upstate NY Permaculture list-serv for announcements and discussion.
We also use Facebook as an "online bulletin board" of sorts and often post events there as well. You will have to "like" us on Facebook on your own though, as we can't do that for you as with the migration to our other online tools. So visit us at http://www.facebook.com/AlchemicalNursery
We hope you'll stay with us after the migration, and join in not only by attending events, but by becoming active in our planning and committee work for permaculture, social justice, mutual aid, and intentional community.

p.s. Our last event of 2011 is approaching on Saturday October 29th, as we permablitz the forest garden location at the Rahma Clinic one more time (3100 South Salina St). We'll be out from 10am to 2pm, sheet mulching, weeding, planting if we get donations, and other tasks as they arise. Hope to see you there. See the flyer and more details about forest gardens at:
