Hi All-

I know some folks here have pondered where and when we could meet some of our nearby fellow permies.
I received the announcement below, about the upcoming NEO Permaculture Potluck.
I've confirmed all are welcome.
More details as I get them.
=========
"A message from Tom Gibson to all members of NEO Permaculture on Local Food Cleveland!

Hi, all,

We haven't got our speakers quite lined up yet, but we've fixed the date a Sunday March 2 from 5 PM to 8 PM. We'll be at the First Unitarian Church of Cleveland 21600 Shaker Blvd. Shaker Heights.
Last year about 150 came from as far away as Toledo. More later when all details have been resolved."

I am planning on attending, and hope a bunch of us can meet up there!

Hi All-

Update with the speaker info, for the March 2 Permaculture Potluck near Cleveland, OH.
I am attending, and hope to see you there!
I'll put up a sign there to say "Permies.com folks, please say hello!", so we can meet one another.

Speaker Details, supplied by the Green Triangle folks: (quoting them here...)
5TH Annual NE Ohio Permaculture Potluck
Sunday March 2, 5 PM to 8 PM
First Unitarian Church, 21600 Shaker Blvd.
Shaker Heights, OH 44122
Sponsored by City Rising Farm, First Unitarian Church of Cleveland, and Green Triangle.
As ever, we'll reflect on what our expanding permaculture community has achieved and plan for next year. Last year 150 people attended from as far away as Toledo and brought just the kind of amazing tasty, healthful food you would expect (full kitchen with ovens for reheating available).

Our Presenters

Larchmere Community Garden: Janet Alter and Ann McCulloh have infused their community garden with the principles they learned from their 2009 PDC with Darren Doherty: Community and site analysis; self-seeding annuals and perennials; orchard guilds; herb spiral; garden structures from repurposed materials; sharing of surplus, etc. But how do you combine permaculture with the goals of individual plot renters? Janet and Ann will discuss what it takes to make their hybrid permaculture/community garden model work.

city repair: This past summer, groups of neighbors in Buckeye-Larchmere-Shaker, Stockyards, Glenville, Mill Creek and Central came together to collaboratively design projects that would transform sites in their neighborhoods into more socially connective, artistically inspiring, humane and ecologically sound places to be - all foundational ideas of permaculture. Inspired by the place-making efforts of City Repair, a 17-year-old community initiative in Portland, OR, Cleveland's pilot year resulted in 3 projects being built across the city by teams of volunteers during the same 10 days in September. We'll talk about how and what's next. For more information, visit:

George Jones Farm: Brad Charles Melzer describes how he and his colleagues are transforming a debt-burdened Oberlin College farm that formerly planted crops in rows into an economically viable Food Forest. Fruit tree guilds everywhere, plus biochar for members who sign up for this permaculture CSA.

Thanks,

FYI-

For those of you traveling, they've just updated the forecast.
We're supposed to get some snow Sat night, but now the winter storm watch band for Sat / Sun is well south of Cleveland.

But of course, your mileage may vary!

Hope to see some of you there!
Mariamne
