What we're about

Join us as we explore our potential to learn, play and work together while practicing and educating one another about Permaculture design and it's applications in Northern Nevada.

Check out our new public wiki "Permaculture Northern Nevada" (https://permaculturenorthernnevada.wikispaces.com/) and feel free to add your permaculture knowledge to it. We want to build a public library of local permaculture information that we can use! Make sure to read the guidelines and check out the Wiki Template before making an entry.

Monthly Membership Meeting

The River School

Our meetups vary from group discussions to short education sessions to hands-on learning experiences, all centered around permaculture. The second Wednesday of each month is our group meeting where we brainstorm and consolidate our plans for the next few months. These meetings are held from 6-7:30 pm at The River School Farm. The Workbees are our hands-on events and are designed to bring the PNN community together to help members accomplish a project while learning new skills. We have regular 'Monthly Workbees' and in addition, anyone is welcome to suggest and host meetups (workbees, social gatherings, educational events, discussion groups, etc). Monthly Workbees have a preliminary education component, rotate locations, and are planned out ahead of time so we don't have a lot of repeat workbee themes. We request that you attend the meeting if possible to bring yourself up to speed about the coming Monthly Workbee and to collectively organize other social and hands-on opportunities for the group. Of course you can attend any event even if you can't come to the meetings. The Monthly Workbees are hosted on the morning of the third Saturday of the month, typically from 9am-12pm. All members are encouraged to organize events that are in addition to our monthly meetings and workbees. If you have an idea for an event, please email it to the group or one of the group organizers and we'll work with you to gather information and support (if needed) and to get the event posted on the meetup site. After you have hosted one event, we will make you a co-organizer and you can post events for the group at any time.

Monthly Workbee

The River School

Our Workbee this month will be at River School where we will be building an herb spiral. Join us as we learn from Josie and enjoy the hands-on experience of how to lay it out and actually build it. Bringing a shovel and gloves would probably be helpful as well.
