Ok so lets meet up and talk about permaculture...our projects...how we can help...what we can trade etc etc. I propose we do a lunch of sorts.

If your interested post your location and times and we can decide after we have a bit more info.

I am in north al in the Florence(35634) area. I can meet up pretty much anytime. Preferably not in the early morning.

Most weekends are good for me too.

Great. So far that is 4 total (one pm). Since i am in the waay north and we have one in bham...maybe we can meet in between. I know a couple of places out in cullman that are pretty good lunch spots if that sounds like a decent mid point for everyone.

How does maybe march 16th sound?

let me know in this thread.

I would be interested, but I'm the pastor so Sundays are, unfortunately, out of the question for me.

My husband and I live outside of Blountsville and are interested in meeting everyone on Saturday. We wanted to offer to meet at our place with folks bringing a sack lunch. Our place is kinda interesting. We live out in the country and have been doing "editable landscaping" for many years. We live simple in a modified Yurt with solar panels generating all of our electricity and solar hot water. Coming here is just an idea. Otherwise, we are happy to meet in Cullman.

Martha where do you live? I chose cullman because it is a midpoint for several people. Also if those who want to come pm me their phone numbers I will give you a call on sat.

We live just outside of Blountsville at Common Ground Community. Yes, Cullman would be closer for you and the person from Jasper. It's 1 hour north of Birmingham up Hwy 79, and almost 2 hours to Florence. We are fine with meeting for lunch in Cullman, just thought it might be nice to be outside and in the environment.
enjoy!
Martha

Martha, I love your idea. I think, this (rumors) will give us a chance to meet everyone, so you dont have a bunch of permie goofballs, running around your place. However, i think on sautday we should talk about planning another outing...and since your apt to volunteer (martha), maybe we can head to your place.

till then lets all try to meet at rumors at 11:00.

I've been collecting emails of folks in Alabama that are interested in Permaculture. I'd love to come to the next meet up and chat with anyone interested in a Permaculture convergence! I run www.alabamapermaculturenetwork.org and www.facebook.com/alabamapermaculturenetwork

I'm a pretty chill guy, just looking to network with other like-minded individuals.

Mike,

I believe we may have met a while back, at one of Cliff Davis's classes in Huntsville. I live just down the road from you in Cotaco. I'd like to get together sometime, you can email me at davempitman@gmail(dot)com.

http://www.alabamapermaculture.org/education.html

REDUCED PRICE - A permaculture design course (PDC) for $500! Most similar courses cost upwards of $1000, but Alabama Permaculture is offering this course at an unbeatable promotional price.

This course will be held in Somerville, AL and consists of 12 Saturday classes, April - June.

Permaculture is a system of designing sustainable homes, farms, and communities, all while utilizing ecologically sound, and environmentally friendly strategies and techniques. This course covers a variety of topics, including organic gardening and farming, foraging/wildcrafting, natural and energy efficient buildings, survival techniques, water harvesting systems, homesteading, aquaculture and aquaponics, and much more.

This course is perfect for anyone interested in prepping, self-reliance, survivalism, and/or off-grid living.

The course focuses on learning-by-doing, so lecture is kept to a minimum, while class discussion is encouraged, and a variety of activities reinforce course topics.

By applying the basic Permaculture design principles, methods, strategies and techniques covered in this course, people can learn how to better provide for their basic needs, using local resources in cost effective, culturally appropriate, healthy and environmentally friendly ways.

Reserve a spot with a $250 deposit (non-refundable), with the rest due by the first day of the course.

Is this happening?

I will be visiting Collinsville to start setting up "base camp" for a longer term project on my mothers' property.
Over time, the visits will get longer, and likely be seasonal. I have some long term hopes and dreams for this beautiful location, and the voices of some folks who live there, rather than having visited there some summers as a kid, would be incredibly helpful.
