Portland Maine Permaculture

maine hoophouse & season extensionThe Portland Maine Permaculture meetup group was launched in 2005 by Lisa Fernandes after she returned from the “Fuelling the Future” conference in Kinsale, Ireland.  That experience caused Lisa to reach back to her permaculture roots and start creating real, live alternatives to the “fear-based responses” that some people were having to the peak oil and climate change discussion.

As of this writing, Portland Maine Permaculture boasts nearly 2,000 members, more than 50 events per year.  Educational events range from guest speakers, films and skill-shares to work parties, trading events and full-blown permaculture workshops and courses!
