What we're about

Permaculture is a design system for creating sustainable human habitats, in harmony with the larger ecosystems of which they are a part. Anyone can use it: starting where they are, with what they have.

This group is a great place to learn about regenerative design, urban agriculture, animal husbandry, edible fungi, bioremediation, aquaculture, rainwater harvesting, local food systems, alternative economics, community living, soil-building, and much much more...

This Meetup is sponsored by the City Repair Project (http://www.cityrepair.org/), a non-profit facilitates artistic and ecologically-oriented placemaking (http://www.cityrepair.org/our-projects/) through projects that honor the interconnection of human communities and the natural world. City Repair has accomplished many projects through a mostly volunteer staff (http://www.cityrepair.org/organizers/)and thousands of volunteer (http://www.cityrepair.org/volunteer-intern/) citizen activists. We provide support, resources, and opportunities to help diverse communities reclaim the culture, power, and joy that we all deserve.

Besides City Repair activities, this Meetup displays workshops, presentations, workparties, and shindigs of other Permaculture organizations and educators in places all around the Portland metro area.

Placemaking Info Session

Habitat for Humanity ReStore, Portland

Do you see the street intersection paintings around town, benches made of earth, or food forests? This event will explore how communities design and install the projects through the City Repair Project. This is a great event if you want to do such a project in your community or if you want to learn about how to volunteer with City Repair! A light lunch is provided. While we are based in PDX and most of our projects are west of 82nd Ave, we are being asked for help more and more in outer east Portland and Gresham, so we are thankful that Habitat for Humanity Portland ReStore is hosting our info session to get us out east!
