What we're about

We wanted to have a place to continue to connect with our hundreds of graduates and thought that starting a meetup in Brooklyn would be an excellent way to bring even more people together. We are gathering to create and implement whole systems permaculture designs for our northeastern bioregion and beyond. Join us!

Everything Gardens-Brooklyn Permaculture Meetup

Location visible to members

Everything Gardens Adapting to the Evolutionary processes of the Planet is THE key to resilience and long term sustainability of humanity and some semblance of civilization. I will outline how to garden in the city in ways that make sense for navigating pollution vectors and why I advocate many crops and food sources coming from outside the city. I will reveal black market sources within the city of highly coveted healthier whole foods from the region too:) Brooklyn Permaculture Meetup Every Third Friday at The Commons 7pm-9pm $5 Suggested donation - no one turned away!
