Eco Support Group (ESG)

  • Private home in Hilltop

    contact us for location, Tacoma, WA (map)

    47.252876 -122.444290

  • RSVP to Bud ([masked]) for address and directions.
  • 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.
