One of our new members, Marissa Zaremba has brought a great opportunity to us. She is working with Bee Ridge Presbyterian Church to create a Community Garden that will teach the church youth earth stewardship and provide produce for the local homeless. This follows perfectly the 3 ethical tenets of permaculture, Care of Earth, Care of People & Equitable Distribution of Earth's Yield.
I am still obtaining information. We are looking for volunteers to help implement. Please respond to this e-mail if you are interesting in helping and let me know in what capacity.
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.
