I think it would be a great idea to meetup & get on-hands experience in constructing various projects by implementing sustainable concepts. Pam Bowling informed me that they plan to build a rocket stove, perhaps they could host a group meet-up with group participation in their project. There are also other projects in permaculture and sustainable concepts I think the group with hands-on participation could learn and benefit as well as implement into a sustainable lifestyle such as cob ovens, strawbale & cob, solar, wind, water, aqua-culture, hugelkultur, food & water storage, emergency preparedness, etc. Is anyone interested? We need a date & place to start a great adventure in stainable living. Is this a thumb-up? Please respond. I noticed that the membership of this group is 135. Recently, I attended a meetup at the Springhouse in Havana which I found very interesting & informative, however the meetup group was about 10 attending. This particular meetup group has great potential for teaching, learning, doing, growing in membership and greatly needed for the times we live in right now and for future generations.
Having grown up and live in Albany, GA, I am not aware of anyone implementing permaculture concepts, so I joined this group to meet people who are into sustainable living, and the awareness of such need for sustainable living principles, I have now just started a meetup group here in Albany and hope people will discover it and join up for this area, I named it Southwest Georgia Permies and Preparedness Guild which I believe is greatly needed for this area.
Anyone in the Tallahassee (Sub)urban and Homesteading and Sustainable Living who might be interested in joining this group for teaching, learning and on-hands doing is encouraged to join it as well and to let other people know about it as well grassroots style, let's get growing and spreading the goodness of homesteading, permaculture, sustainable lifestyles. Albany, GA is called the goodlife city, well, I hope it will soon become as it is called with more people living sustainably even in the city or in the country. Sustainable lifestyle is the Goodlife, so I invite encourage everyone in this group to becoming actively involved and to spread the good word as good seed in a prepared, fertile soil. People need to know what they have not been taught in the society in which we live, future generations are dependent upon knowledge of how to live in the earth in a good, wholesome way respecting it and one another and to be good stewards of the earth. We are all our brothers keeper whether we acknowledge it or not, and we are all accountable for how we care for the earth which is our sustainability. We have been supplied with everything we need for the pursuit of life in peace with happiness, what we do in this life and how we choose to live it is up to each individual in obtaining it. Our modern technological culture of today is in great poverty regarding the basics of how to live in this world in a way that is conducive of peace and happiness, all we need to do is look around us, turn on the news or internet to become aware of the real poverty of this world. It is the lack of love, compassion, peace. Yet, the world is crying out and our world leaders are proclaim it, but they do not possess what it takes to obtain it. Why? Because of the love of something opposite, the love of money, power (domination over other humans), greed. However, I am aware that with the billions of humans alive today, love can spread like grassroots to cover the whole earth. The numbers are greater among normal humans than the percent of humans with power and greed of the status quo. Great is the need in this country to get back to the basics of good, wholesome living and it can start with a few. Many people are catching on to this in some areas, but the need is great right here in this area. All it takes to start a wildfire is just a spark, and we can be the spark right where we live. People perish for lack of knowledge, not lack of resources because they are what surround us everywhere. It is not the money or wealth that will sustain people, it is the basics.
