Most of the permaculturists I know are introverts: Not willing to get together to help their communities, they just help their communities as individuals quietly going about doing good for the world and for the community without getting together, without workshops, without talking about it. I could introduce you to the network, but it would be up to you to plug yourself in. If you have the mindset to connect, then you really don't need the introduction... There isn't a set meeting time nor place. I introduce lots of people to the network, but few actually end up engaged...

Perhaps it's just me, but I think of permaculture as a phantom cell, lone wolf, or leaderless resistance type of activity.

The Wasatch Front folks seem to hang out on Facebook at Permaculture Utah and interesting workshops get posted there pretty frequently. I know Toby Hemenway is coming the weekend of Sept 26-27 to lecture to one of the groups that is active there.

Even if people want to do things their way, it doesn't mean they're stupid. If we were truly that stubborn, we wouldn't be participating in this forum. I share my knowledge with people that appreciate it. If I have any tendency to avoid larger social contact when it comes to permaculture practice, it's because I'm tired of hearing, "that's not the way it's done." As far as combining and becoming a greater force for good, I am skeptical about forming another club, group, etc. (bureaucracy?). What I want are friends, with whom I can share recipes, enjoy dinner, and share knowledge. People are more important than the process at the end of the day, and I want to care about the people with whom I share my work.

It's tough to get a group going. I live in Cedar City UT and our group kept getting smaller and smaller and then fizzled out totally. There are people around but they are too busy to meet up.
I would love to network with some southern UT people who love permaculture. I have not been able to find too many.
