What we're about

Public Group

Portland Maine Permaculture is a meetup group organized by The Resilience Hub's mission is to build resilience at the personal, household and community level in the face of economic, energy and climate challenges while creating functional examples of thriving local communities and abundant, healthy ecosystems.

Meetup is the tool we use to manage RSVP, photos and comments for more than sixty events every year.

We are about developing solutions, connections, techniques and skills. This group is about starting wherever you are and recognizing that none of us can do this alone.

Wherever you are and whatever you are doing, there is some part of this group that probably makes sense for your life and your relationship to the landscape and community where you live and work. Join us.

We organize skill-shares, workshops, work parties, permablitzes, full permaculture courses, conferences, guest speakers, movie nights, field trips and more.
