Calling all local readers
One of our goals in
creating the Walden Effect Annex is to build our community, either by
bringing in likeminded folks from outside the area or by tempting
intriguing locals to come out of the woodwork. While the Annex
remains a work in progress, Mark and I made a start on the second goal
this weekend by creating a Meetup group --- the Extreme
SW Virginia Permaculture Guild.
The Extreme SW Virginia Permaculture Guild brings together farmers, gardeners, homesteaders, and dreamers in the extreme southwest tip of Virginia (and surrounding areas). Join us as we swap seeds, visit farms, taste tomatoes, build community permaculture projects, and share ideas about living sustainably.
Do you want to learn more about forest gardening, homegrown edible mushrooms, top bar hives, or vegetable varieties that do well without chemicals? Do you want to talk to someone who's heard of Paul Stamets, Joel Salatin, or Bill Mollison (and maybe bring one of these experts to speak in our region)? Perhaps you'd like to meet up with folks interested in creating a cowshare or intentional community? If so, this group is for you, no matter how little or much experience you've had with permaculture in the past.
We're currently planning a seed swap full of heirloom tomatoes, locally adapted garlic, old-timey beans, and much more, with date and location to be announced on the meetup group soon. Everyone who lives within driving distance of Dungannon, Virginia, is welcome to join --- just follow the link and click the "Join us!" button in the upper right hand corner of your screen. I'm looking forward to meeting you soon.
Our POOP-free chicken waterer is sponsoring the first year
of Meetup fees, so membership is free.
