hi all - forwarding... see you there!

There's a newly-formed Sustainability working group. They want to coordinate between all the groups and make sure everyone is operating as sustainably as possible. I imagine a lot of you may want to attend this group. The first meeting will be tomorrow night at 5:30 beneath the red cube across from OWS. You can also e-mail [address removed] to get on the listserve and get involved in the conversation on-line. 

best wishes, Wendy

observe and interact and respond to a call for more workshops.

*Some things we are planning:*

Permaculture Fundamentals training
Greywater instal and workshops to handle their dishwater

Economics Solutions: visioning
Health care station: herbal teas and peer counselling
Permaculture re-design of the park

We will be posting updates to facebook and letting other permies know how
they can be in solidarity!

And, I'll be down there today dropping off some supplies, marching with
the Food Justice group/All and talking to occupiers about permaculture related ideas.

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.
Thanks,
Margaret in Brooklyn
