Fall Gardeners Gathering
It's autumn and the gardening season is coming to a close. Do you have questions about how to prepare your growing areas for the winter so that they are ready and fertile for planting in the spring? What is there still to harvest? How was this year's bounty preserved for the winter (the root cellar should be completed by this meetup!)? Do you have 2018 soil test results you are trying to understand? We can go over these issues, plus reflect on successes and problems we had this year so we can learn and prepare for our 2019 gardens. About Gardeners Gatherings: An important aspect of permaculture is obtaining a yield and becoming a successful gardener is one great way to do that. But what if you run into trouble? How to deal with insects, diseases, water management? When to harvest for peak flavor? How about planting cover crops? How can you build soil rather than deplete it? Let's learn together! COST: sliding scale of $5-20, payable at the class.

What we're about

Permaculture aims to regenerate healthy, productive landscapes and communities by consciously applying ecological principles to the design of human habitats. It is a theory, a mindset, and a lens for looking at the world in order to create a sustainable and just planet for all. Permaculture’s three ethics - Earth Care, People Care and Fair Share - and its twelve principles are used to design systems that create and foster healthy relationships. Through this discipline, each of us can take greater responsibility for ourselves and our world by developing life skills for sustainable living to become active participants and producers.

“Permaculture gives us a toolkit for moving from a culture of fear and scarcity to one of love and abundance.” -Toby Hemenway (permaculturist & author)

What we do: We build community, share ideas and learn how to move forward mindfully and in tune with the ethics of Earth Care, People Care and Fair Share. Through the Seacoast NH Permaculture Meetup and other partner organizations we bring people together by offering workshops, speakers, movies, discussions, swaps, potluck meals and other events.

"We don't know what details of a truly sustainable future are going to be like, but we need options, we need people experimenting in all kinds of ways and permaculturists are one of the critical gangs that are doing that." -Dr. David Suzuki (geneticist, broadcaster, environmentalist)

Our mission: Seacoast NH Permaculture Group empowers individuals and communities to work together to create resiliency through the use of Permaculture in the NH seacoast area and beyond. We inspire and teach each other by sharing skills, knowledge, and regenerative practices, nurturing our connections and celebrating our work.

“You cannot save the land apart from the people or the people apart from the land.” -Wendell Berry (farmer, environmentalist, author)
