So, I believe it is safe to assume that nearly everyone on these forums is "Goofy About Permaculture," but I wonder how many of you are located in the Merrimack Valley (northern MA/southern NH)?

I don't have anything going on myself, per say, besides a quasi-hugel raised bed in my parking lot, but is there any Permie relate stuff happening in my valley?

More specifically, I am in Lowell, MA and I love to build.

Let's hear it!

I'm in Wilmington, MA. Starting to do some stuff in the backyard (raised beds, hugel, fruits/nuts, compost, rain harvest). There's a Boston permie meetup http://www.meetup.com/Boston-Permaculture/ and a North Shore one http://www.meetup.com/Northshore-Permaculture-Meetup-Group/

What kind of things are you interested in?

Meetup, that a good call. I hadn't thought to look there for events.

Perennials, Hugels, and soil regeneration are at the top of my list right now seeing as I am currently city-locked.

Hi -

Husband and I am in a town nearby, and have actually been thinking about a more localized permaculture meetup group. Feel free to PM me.

I do organic raised bed gardening, some fruit/nut trees, herbs, vermiculture, etc.

Good luck with your hugel!
