What we're about

If you would like to host a Meet Up yourself, please fill out the following form: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1N1QYkzDOoM... (https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1N1QYkzDOoMRfOzu6LKLcbkpluY663yuE5sTlH6XezpQ/edit) and we will see that it happens!

We are a developing Meet-Up, started by Mike Brunt, a server engineer and Alexandra Bwye, a whole foods nutritionist, both certified permaculture designers. We started this group to discuss permaculture techniques and learn from one another, with Mike's previous farm being used as testing places and local land being transformed into edible landscapes that are low-maintenance and for public usage, in a similar fashion to Incredible Edible Todmorden in England.

Group members have no fees to pay and the financial support will come from public donations. So far we have set up a polytunnel for winter gardening, created 2 keyhole gardens and an herb spiral utilizing hugelkulture, harvested 3 trees worth of apples to learn to use an apple press, brewed our own beer and kombucha, planted grapevines, began mushroom farming, gotten a coop to keep 4 chickens, utilized passive heating to prevent the polytunnel from freezing, added a rainwater harvesting system by the polytunnel, and have added a large solar panel for irrigating the polytunnel with the rainwater. We have had members host Meet Up's and have connected with local efforts implementing urban farms.

We are looking to expand our projects to public land with the help of a group who is interested in learning while doing. If you are interested in joining the group, feel free to check out our website to see what we have worked on so far. www.foodscaping.co.
