ENVISION THIS...a group that provides many practical tools & skills for building resilience and community as a positive response to peak oil & climate change.  

Our guest, Lisa Fernandez, founded Portland Maine Permaculture Meetup in 2005 in order to gather together good people with a genuine interest in sustainable living and a “get out there and do it” attitude.  The group now has over 1,221 permaculture advocates who are great thinkers and doers and a record of 316 meetups.

Portland Maine Permaculture Meetup is about developing connections, techniques and skills - strongly rooted in permaculture - to create resilient and truly sustainable communities. This group is about moving in a positive and productive direction: resilient people, households and neighborhoods full of creative abundance.   This group is about starting wherever you are and recognizing that none of us can do this alone.  We organize skill-shares, workshops, work parties, permablitzes, full permaculture courses, conferences, guest speakers, movie nights, field trips and more.

Permaculture is one the best ways to expand, organize and apply the many tools available to you to address climate change, peak oil and economic volatility.  It is a design method and set of skills for creating resilient human habitats and healthy ecosystems which can allow us to live on this planet indefinitely.  It is based on patterns in nature and encompasses food production, shelter, water, energy, community, health and education.
