What we're about

The Monadnock Region Permaculture Group, sponsored by The Sustainability Project, Inc., provides a community forum and an online calendar of events for Permaculture information & discussion. Permaculture is the practice and theory that builds permanent agricultural and human systems based on patterns in nature. Through permaculture, we learn essential skills that help us design a way of life that is in harmony with the natural world, including: organic, regenerative farming & gardening, biodiversity, soil & environmental health, developing a sense of place, natural resource conservation, collaboration, and living in connection with the natural world. This group offers a variety of workshops and learning opportunities such as: films and educational speakers, permaculture farm & garden tours, discussion and book study groups, hands on experiences, community garden building, energy conscious living, seed and plant swaps, and social events designed to strengthen our connections and support sustainable community action. We welcome everyone, those who are experienced and those who are new!

Monadnock Region Permaculture Group June Meetup

Needs a location

Join us on Sunday, June 26, from 2-4 pm for our next gathering of the Monadnock Region Permaculture Meet-up Group. Chief and Elder Paul “Gwilawato” Bunnell of the Sovereign Abenaki Nation will join us to share the news of their planned cultural education and nature center in Claremont, NH.

The Sustainability Project, a 501(c)3 nonprofit educational organization, promotes a love of nature, environmental stewardship, caring communities and ways of living that deepen our understanding of the interconnected web of life. Our guiding principles embrace diversity, inclusion and compassion as fundamental to the long-term well-being of our planet and its inhabitants. With Chief Paul’s support, The Sustainability Project will continue to explore our connections with indigenous groups, locally and globally, for the benefit of all.

At the close of the meeting, we will visit the Emerson Brook Forest Center where our planned 1200sq.ft. building is scheduled for construction beginning in July. Seeing the lay of the land will help us design harmonious plant communities “polycultures” for our planned edible forest gardens. Please come prepared to share your experience with designs that have worked in your gardens.

And... you are welcome to bring any finger food you may want to share.

Call Valerie[masked] for more information and to let us know if you plan to attend.
