We have several committed permies who wish to meet a couple of times a month--for study, collaboration, networking...community! We will be meeting each first and third Thursday evenings, at 7PM--initially, at one of our homes, so please email loretta (a) wegrowfromhere.com or PM on Facebook in advance to find out where we will meet that week.
I am inspired to create a conversation around these dates, especially concerning the subject of community--some beginning thoughts:
• What are our needs as individuals?
• What services or 'products' can we provide?
• What services or products do we prefer to have supplied by others?
• What does the community at large need? (Look at both the area permaculture community, and the surrounding 'mainstream' community.)
If you feel so moved, please bring your thoughts, post here in comments, or if you cannot make this date/time slot, please suggest another, so that we can schedule a community gathering!
We are grateful to the St. Petersburg 'Gaia's Guardians' for guiding and supporting us, as we expand our local permaculture community:
"The group promotes the principles of action, education and community. Pertinent field trips and movie screenings as well as potlucks, parties, seed swaps and general social activities are a regular part of this group. We also engage in "perma-blitzes" which is the implementation of gardening plots in each other's yards, and the creation of community gardens in the area. So, come on out and enjoy some community!"
