Mt. Joy Fall Mulch Extravaganza
One of our most important tasks at Mt. Joy Orchard is keeping a heavy organic mulch on the ground, this keeps the weeds down, conserves water, protects and builds soil. Every fall the deciduous trees in Portland drop many tons of leaves, which make excellent orchard mulch. This year we hope make the best possible use of that amazing gift by spending a few hours spreading leaf mulch on the orchard with our friends (that's you). Come for the whole event, or just a hour. Potluck lunch at 12:30, please bring a dish to share as well as your own cup/plate/spork etc. Leaves are light and easy to work with, there are also other tasks that need doing, so there is work for people of all ages and abilities.

What we're about

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.
