Hi Everyone,

I wanted to start a thread for people living and homesteading in southern New Hampshire and southern Maine so we can all connect and build community. I know there are already a number of groups available in these areas for permaculturists, but this thread will allow for more communication about regional specific challenges and opportunities outside of the gatherings that other groups organize.

Maybe we can start by sharing some of the groups we are familiar with that are permaculture focused! (on a side note, my computer just marked permaculture as a misspelled word, meaning my computer didn't recognize the word! That should be a whole other thread)

The group I'm mostly involved with locally is Seacoast NH Permaculture Meetup which can be found at

I hope to hear from a whole bunch of my neighbors about anything and everything local to us!

Hi Jackie....don't know how, but finally just stumbled across this thread!  Anyhow, I'm in southern Maine and have met you at Seacoast NH Meetup meetups.  I'm sure you already know about the Portland Permaculture Meetup Group, but thought I'd add it to the list for others as it's a large group.
I miss the old days when I would think up a sinister scheme for world domination and you would show a little emotional support. So just look at this tiny ad:
