Eco Support Group (ESG) & Permaculture Potluck

Laura Mae's House On HillTop

Purpose: To provide 2 needs that people have during these changing times. 1) Provide a monthly place and time when people can Potluck and share permaculture idea's, skills, seeds swaps etc. Motivation 1: People interested in Permaculture want to be able to get together on a regular basis in a casual potluck atmosphere where conversations are organic' and less formal 2) Provide a safe place for people who find themselves in need of some emotional and social support as they learn about and may be concerned about the global warming, ecological, and economic collapse predicaments. Motivation2 : Really “getting it”—deeply understanding what is happening now and coming soon—often results in powerful, negative emotional responses. People who succeed in breaking through their denial of global warming, peak energy, ecological, and economic collapse often fall into a pit of fear, anger, alienation, loneliness, helplessness, and/or depression. For many reasons we need to help and support each other in emotional and social ways. Who: Anyone interested, any age. Notification: Word of mouth and email list to start. Possible on-line Meet-Up created. Schedule: 5 to 8 pm 2nd Saturday of each month.See upcoming dates below. Location: Potluck at private house in Tacoma, usually in the Hilltop area. Please RSVP to Bud ([masked]) for address. Agenda: (This is flexible!) Brief starting ritual reviewing our purpose and motivation and everyone introducing themselves. Meet, eat a potluck meal, talk, and share regarding our thoughts, feelings, and ideas as we continue to learn about global warming, ecological, and economic collapse issues. We might sometimes have some kind of short sharing or presentation, see and discuss a video, or discuss some paper, book chapter, or book. Develop friendships and socially support each other as we learn about and work individually and together to cope emotionally, socially, and in practical ways (permaculture and natural building) with the changes in progress and accelerating. Announcements: Next meeting date and location. Email notification list and/or Meet-up Clean up and depart
