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.
