Permaculture-related­ Conference in Belfast, ME

  • November 10, 2006 · 12:00 PM
  • Hutchinson Center

This event is not put on by our group, but I am posting here since there may be some strong interest in cross-pollination on this topic: Last year some of us attended the 2nd Annual conference by ESTIA (an international eco-peace community) which focused on the role of permaculture in eco-village design. This year the conference looks to be focusing on the components of building an eco-peace village (a sub-category of intentional community). You can bet that alot of permaculture will be discussed, especially with Charles & Julia Yelton on the agenda. Other speakers include Eliot Coleman (Maine's own four-season harvest guru), Richard Graves (of the Maine Chapter of the US Green Building Council), and many more... **NOTE THAT YOU MUST CALL THE NUMBER BELOW TO REGISTER ** We can't technically take RSVPs for their event at this meetup site. I'm pasting their agenda here for your reference - I don't *think* they have a web site for the event.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
