What we're about

"Permaculture is an ecological design system for sustainability in all aspects of human endeavor. It teaches us how to build natural homes, grow our own food, restore diminished landscapes and ecosystems, catch rainwater, build communities and much more." (Quoted from permaculture.org)

We love to get our hands dirty in a healthy, organic soil. We care about our planet and people. We lovingly tend to the land and try to minimize our impact on it in everything that we do. Help us build a permaculture presence and develop permaculture projects together in our homes, gardens, and County. Join us now!

We have a quarterly CORE Permaculture event where we try to get together the movers and shakers of Permaculture and make decisions affecting the group there. Please attend at least our CORE meetings as often as you can to increase the cohesiveness of this group. We keep our CORE meetings free, except for the big Convergences (one or two a year) which are amazing all-day or multi-day events with lots of speakers.

We are growing strong in numbers and with your help we will grow stronger!

Please feel free to post your event/project, as this is a democratic group where everybody leads! Please follow the guidelines for posting by starting your post title with a "$" if your event requires payment, and ending the title with, in brackets, the area of town the event is in.

Example:

$ Introduction to Permaculture [North County, San Marcos]

By choice, though, we do not accept events for animal slaughtering in this group, as many of our members are vegan or vegetarians.

Meet you soon!
