What we’re about
The Central New Hampshire Permaculture Meetup Group is dedicated to creating real, face-to-face community, as well as an online calendar of events and Permaculture information & discussions.
Permaculture is the practice and theory that builds permanent agricultural and human systems based on patterns in nature. Through permaculture, we learn essential skills that help us design a way of life that is in harmony with the natural world, including:
organic, regenerative farming & gardening
soil & environmental health
local foods & cooking
understanding peak oil and the transition movement
developing a sense of place
living in connection with the nature
This group offers a variety of workshops and learning opportunities such as:
- educational speakers
permaculture farm & garden tours
discussion and book study groups
hands on experiences
community garden building
seed and plant swaps
social events, like our permaculture movie & local potluck nights
We welcome everyone, those who are experienced and those who are new!

- The Wonder of Paw Paws5 Partridge Rd, Concord, NH
Come to Concord to learn about growing pawpaws in NH. Pawpaws (Asimina triloba) are North America’s largest native fruit, and the trees are hardy in Zone 5. Learn about their history, planting, pollination, grafting, and take part in harvest! Unlike the often-tart, crisp fall fruit we’re used to from nearby apple orchards, pawpaws are sweet and custardy. Flavors are variously compared to bananas, vanilla, pears, melons, pineapple, and mangos. Pawpaws will be available for sampling, with free seeds for participants, and we will make pawpaw ice cream!
Unfortunately, Covid and a bunch of other nasty contagious illnesses are still amongst us. We trust that everyone attending will take proper precautions to keep ourselves and each other safe.
Cost: Donations for the operating costs of the Central NH Permaculture Meet-Up Group are appreciated.
