How are you currently applying the permaculture principles in your life? (Care of people and the earth, fair distribution of surplus, promotion of diversity, cooperation, integration, zero waste, etc.: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Permaculture)

I lead my example with curiosity, compassion, courage, creativity, collaboration, and hope.

    I came to your meet up last night but couldn't find you. The linked address on the RSVP page was 24 Autumn Hill Rd., off Claremont Rd., in Bernardsville. I found the address, but no one was home. I listened for sounds deeper in the property, but heard none and no obvious path. Stooped a a neighbors house down the street, and he didn't know you. Googled you only phone, found your website. Only means of contact was email - no phone. Gave up and went home, disappointed.

    Hey Wanda! I would love to come to your Earth Day Celebration at Comeback Farm and I will do my best to make it out. I do however have prior engagements in my local community for my group "Toms River Moving Forward". If I find myself able, I will make it for the later few hours of your celebration. :)

    Hi Wanda, thank you for the welcome message. The thing is I live in Princeton, NJ, and am still trying to find a way to get to the farm. Or it would be great if there are meetups around Princeton!

    Hi Wanda -- I signed up to go to with you guys to Rodale on Friday, but unfortunately, something has come up and I have to cancel. I was really looking forward to meeting you guys and to seeing Rodale -- It looks like a fantastic place and resource. I hope they'll be another opportunity to visit it again soon. Enjoy the day and please post about it! Best, Karen

    Hi Wanda,
    Thanks for the invite for the Solstice celebration. Instead of a dish, can I bring some wine and/or softdrinks?
