What we're about

Our group seeks to provide a structure to link, support, collaborate with and expand the community of individuals and organizations in our area interested in learning and practicing the art of permaculture.

“To design ecologically sound, economically prosperous human communities guided by the ethics: caring for Earth, caring for people, and reinvesting the surplus that this care will create.”—Toby Hemenway

We also work with other permaculture groups in the region to strengthen and grow the New England permaculture network. We use the Meetup platform to announce events, discuss issues and share information.
