• What we'll do
Save money and increase the biodiversity of your plantings by learning to propagate new plants yourself! From plant divisions, cuttings, layering, grafting and more.... you will learn about the various ways that you can "make new plants" from plants that you or your friends/family/neighbors already have growing.
Aaron Parker returns to take us on a tour of several different plant propagation methods, with a focus on useful edible or other functional plants for Maine farms and gardens.

The Resilience Hub (http://resiliencehub.org/) is a collaborative non-profit organization based in Portland Maine. Our mission is to build resilience at the personal, household and community levels while creating thriving examples of abundance based on ecological wisdom. We do this by offering a range of events, education and training as well as resilience-building services (http://resiliencehub.org/services/maine-permaculture-design/) and projects (http://resiliencehub.org/projects/). We operate at local, statewide and regional levels (connected to and in support of other local permaculture "nodes.") Our work touches on all the realms traditionally encompassed by Permaculture (land use, energy, water, buildings, etc.) but with special focus on food and creating new economic models. The Resilience Hub (http://resiliencehub.org/) uses this meetup platform to organize and manage more than 70 events per year.
Contact us (http://resiliencehub.org/about-2/contact-us/) if you would like to offer a workshop through our group or to request a specific type of event or workshop.
