How did you find this particular group? (word of mouth? internet? etc.)

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!

What interests you about this particular group?

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.

Are you living/gardening/growing predominantly in an urban, suburban or rural setting?

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.

What Mark S. is saying about this Meetup Group

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!
