The Sarasota Permaculture & Transition Meetup is a forum open to all interested parties to learn about and to implement permaculture design concepts. We can provide opportunities for learning and implement sustainability concepts into our lives. We can accomplish this through information sharing, presentations and active participation in projects that will take knowledge, (i.e. that which we bring to the group and that which we learn from others), into the realm of action by engaging participants in the process.

In our own right we are all leaders and followers. Each of us has talents and our collective knowledge will, over time, be organically mixed into the fold when opportunities arise to activate that which each of us brings to the table.
So come and "peer through the veil." As a community, it promises to be a good place to "plant" oneself and to grow.

IMPORTANT TIP: The message board is for all members to post items of interest. So make a posting and also check the MESSAGE BOARD frequently. You can get an email post when new messages appear and learn how to track those of importance to you. It is a great way to keep connected...
