Starting an ND Permaculture Group?

I think we’ve finally hit that magic threshold of people interested in starting a permaculture group in Bismarck/Mandan, North Dakota. To that end, an organizational meeting will be held Tuesday 14 April at 7pm in the Bismarck Public Library’s meeting room B.

If you’re interested, come and chat with us! Let’s all decide what we’d like this group to be.

Some questions to consider before coming to the meeting, so we can arrive ready to get started:

  • What is your background?
  • Why are you interested in this?
  • Do you have any experience with permaculture, gardening, doing things sustainably, etc?
  • What do you hope to get out of this group? Plant variety suggestions? Things you can do to make your property more sustainable, even if it’s an apartment? Discussions with like-minded people to help increase your understanding of the subject? Working through a course together? Tours of permacultured settings? Speakers? Or something else entirely that we haven’t thought of yet (which is the entire point of starting a group!)?

    I found your blog thru Sue’s “Growing Local” website. I’ve been interested in sustainable living for much of my life and am intrigued by your subtitle “Grow your own everything”!!

    Gardening, berries and orchards are my passion!

    If time, weather and roads allow, I hope to attend the Permaculture organizational meeting.

    Best wishes!

    I am very interested, but have little experience to offer. I am about an hour from Bismarck, and would love to learn more, my family’s ultimate goal is to be much more self-sustaining than we are now. Found this website too late for the original meeting, will you be holding another one or ones routinely? I would love to find some like-minded people here in ND to exchange ideas with and learn from! Thanks, Brina
