The purpose of this meetup is to bring together people interested in the principles of Permaculture Design: Care of the Earth, Care of People, Share the Surplus... Meetups will offer easily accessible ideas and information to those interested in working with nature to improve their quality of life.

Permaculture is a holistic, “big-picture” approach to design which can apply to almost any field. Imagine a world where plants and living systems do most of the work instead of machines and production lines. Industrial technology is arguably reaching its limit, while nature's design potential has yet to be explored. Permaculture is about creating enduring design systems that mimic the simplicity and sophistication of nature - and of course community - the most resilient design system of all!
