Permaculture Hastings

12/05/2011

Ready to start a group?

Filed under: Uncategorized — gbell12 @ 7:31 pm

When I first reserved this address on WordPress and wrote a few posts, I wasn’t intending to write a lot. I set the site up as a “honeypot”. Something for people to find when searching Google for permaculture in the region.

It’s served that purpose OK – over the time it’s been up, the site’s brought me in contact with a few interested people. The most serious permaculturalists I found ended up not buying property nearby.

The eternally optimistic IEA, always predicting huge future increases in oil production, dropped a bombshell on Catalyst this month. They’re not only admitting Peak Oil is a possibility, but they’re saying it’s already happened – in 2006.

That’s just one of many stories that’s hit the airwaves recently pointing out the urgency of coming problems and the  importance of solutions to the unfolding Peak Oil dilemma. Permaculture is one of those solutions.

So the time is ripe for us to gather, officially. Anyone in the Hastings region who has a PDC: I need you to join with me in creating a proper Permaculture Hastings group. Contact me and let’s get started!

    • Hi Don,

      Yes and no – I’ve met with another local who’s got some time and energy to start one up. No in that that’s as far as it’s gotten. I’m about to send out an email and will include you.

      Cheers,
      Greg

  2. How successful were you?
    although I haven’t got a PDC, I am interested by the concept, and would like to get in contact with you…

    • Hi Veronique – I’ve gotten a few contacts, but nobody yet willing to move forward with starting a group. Should we start one? 🙂
