NEW LOCATION!!! (Thanks, Soraya!)
PLEASE ARRIVE ON TIME as the downstairs door will be locked and someone will have to get you if you are late. Please text Tiffany,[masked], if you are running late, so she can check for you. Cell reception is bad in that area, and it may take a few minutes for your message to be received.
This meetup is held the first Tuesday of each month and has two purposes.
Firstly, it serves as a general networking opportunity for Permies in the area to meet each other and to provide mutual aid. What are you struggling with that you need help with? What is everyone working on and where? Who is available to help each other with projects?
Secondly, this is an information session to increase knowledge about all facets of permaculture from farming practices, to economic systems, and community building.
This month we will celebrate the end of the year together with some snacks and drinks as we share our favorite permaculture events. There will be a slideshow presentation featuring images of some of the bigger events, as well as a special presentation by Event Organizer, Gil Lopez, on how he took over a vacant lot in Queens and is now in the process of getting it recognized as a legal community garden, and part of the NYC Farm School curriculum after three years of squatting.
Please feel free to bring snacks or refreshments to share, and your own plates and cups if possible to minimize waste.
This is going to be a meeting you don't want to miss!
