Buxton/Hollis/Gorham­ Movie Night: Permaculture and Organic Gardening

  • Nov 19, 2012 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Join us for the first movie night for Buxton/Hollis/Gorham members and other "westerners" as we get to know our more local neighbors and build connections outside of Portland proper.

This film is from Australia and demonstrates how Josh Byrne creates a productive permaculture garden on a 1/4 acre suburban lot in Perth. "Permaculture is all about finding creative solutions to living a more sustainable life by growing local organic food, reducing energy consumption, recycling our waste and creating habitat for other life around us."

6:30 Potluck Supper (bring a dish to share and your own potluck kit - plate, bowl, cup, utensils, napkin)

7:00 Announcements and Movie

8:30-9:00-ish Discussion and Closing

Hope to see you there!

For those with allergies, please be aware there are cats in the house (who will probably hide upstairs for the evening!)

    This event was a great. The film was informative and a good starting point for more screenings, discussion groups and work parties out west of Portland.

    Hi Nathan!
    Welcome back to Maine. Yes, we can fit you in. I opened up the meetup to a few more people.
    See you tonight, and don't forget your potluck kit!

      Hi Doug. I've done a test set up of our living room, and yes, we can fit you! Hope this gets to you in time. See you tomorrow night, perhaps.

    Hi all. The Google map marker for our house is a little off. We're actually tucked into the corner where Canal Rd. makes a turn, so if you come down Usher Mill Rd, keep going straight past the sign that says "Private Drive" and we're on the left.

    I'm so bummed I didn't respond soon enough! Any chance you can cram me in? Barbara

      Hi Barbara! Sure, we can squeeze you in. Do you have a folding camp chair you could bring?

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
