I found this group by perusing the Meetup website.
Since I grew up on a farm, I'm incredibly interested in self-sufficiency farming. I have a lot of knowledge already about vegetable and fruit growing, as well as small scale livestock and beehive care, but there is always room for more knowledge! I would love to meet like-minded people with similar interests to engage in mutual knowledge share opportunities, either through some of the cool workshops this group offers, or through more one-on-one interactions.
Currently I am in a very urban environment. Previously I helped grow food on 25 acres of field, garden, and woodland, but now am tackling a much harder feat: successful container gardening! I have a small yard area with partial shade and I am practicing small-scale succession planting to try and get the most food out of my containers!
Hi, I'm Molly! I grew up in small-town Maine on a subsistence farm, and recently moved to Portland for work. I love being outdoors as often as possible, and am seeking places to be earth-connected here in the "big city!"
