I went there to bring them info on Transition and other expansive ideas 
for change.I  WAs going to go to the Permie meetup but was asked to stay 
and share ideas at the GA.
I walked around, saw how it was going, talked w folks, stayed for their 
general assembly nightly meeting.
Everyone was kind, helpful, open , receptive, energetic...but also it 
was chaoitc and crowded and a need for reorganizing their space was 
mentioned. I said and thought... hmmm, we could use  permaculture design 
ideas to make the site work better.
They also are wanting to learn. They say they need to educate themselves 
about many things, have teach-ins etc.
So if any one want to go down, go. A good way to bring new ideas to the 
movement while it's in it's formative stage.
