Amory Weld - I met in Sicily and is an amazing human being; Lizzy Derecktor - I have known for many years, an amazing human being; Julia and Charles Yelton - who I met last fall and who certified me in Sicily, amazing human beings!
It's reputation and that of you, Lisa. I am wide open to all you are able to offer or direct me to including resources, people, ideas, advice and direction.
Somewhere between a suburban and a rural setting, with some unusual twists thrown in like high winds, warmer winter temps than the mainland in the winter and cooler temps in the summer.
I am Mark Shain, I have gardened for many years and started on my Permaculture path after attending three workshops in the fall of 2010 at Lizzy Derecktor's home in East Boothbay. In March 2011, I was certified by Julia and Charles Yelton in Sicily.
This was my first meetup with Portland Maine Permaculture. To say it was fantastic is an understatement. I thoroughly enjoyed meeting all these new, enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and mindful human beings, all concerned and interested in the transition we need to make as a species, and all endeavoring to play a positive role in this process. Thanks to you all!
