Hey Permies,

Help me spread Permaculture education and action throughout our community

Is anyone practicing Permaculture in Northeast Ohio area interested in working together to help the movement gain momentum in Ohio.

I'm also on Instagram @permaculture_life

Hi Steve,
I'm not in Northeast Ohio, however I am in North Central, the Sandusky area. I to am interested in the Permaculture movement.
I have a small garden along the fence line. I built a compost bin from used pallets, two rain barrels, and a Hugel culture bed.
You are located where?
Larry

Just by reading your postings I think you are just looking for the Akron area Permies.
I hope you get them from your area . Good luck in moving forward.

I'm in Kent E of Akron, a permie wannabe Veteran farmer, looking for land, resources, wisdom, others who can share/rent equipment, dream with me.  Don't really know much about how the forum works or how to move from virtual to face-to-face, but without a place as yet, that may be too early anyway!

Hey Jim,

What type of specific farming experience do you have?

I would be interested in bartering or a work share in the future.

Medina Permaculture Meet up group will be my next step when I have time to go from virtual to face to face and would be my suggestion for now.

Come Springtime I want to be working with fellow local Permies.  There is a possibility I'll host a farm tour/ event/ class.  For now I'm focusing on building our farm.

Hope to stay in touch and get together this Spring

Steve--
a life time of gardening, though not with the greatest success!  but no real farming.  I'm a permies Veteran farmer wannabe, doing the homework to figure things out for when the time comes.  I might be of more help with putting together the proposal for the LeBron James project-- though I've not done a lot with successful proposals, I have some experience in trying, and decades of what might be in permies language called "community cultivation."  I'm also better on the email than on the forums- jlewis21@kent.edu

Keep being a blessing!
jim

First post on Permies.com, just registered so I could reply to a longer thread about the Akron area and the Lebron James Family Foundation (I have an office in the building next door to the LBJFF School of Education at the University of Akron).  Now I can't find that thread again, so I'll post here.

The Nuns in Bath, Ohio with the organic plant sale in May have a lot more at the Crown Point Ecology Center [ http://crownpt.org/ ] !
I am on the Ecosystems Planning Committee at CPEC.  At our January meeting yesterday we talked about expanding our efforts in permaculture.  Today I started researching what is being done elsewhere, and stumbled across this forum.

Steve Taylor, I read 5 months of your posts on the other thread, and I want to talk more about local efforts to promote permaculture and how Crown Point can help.

Hi Bob, welcome to Permies!  The link to the other thread is a few post from the top on this thread.  It works for me, but may be on probation with Permies.com.

You are welcome to post here instead though.  Thanks for your interest!

The above thread is my project to help spread Permaculture in our community.  I'm open to other ideas and look forward to talking about it.

I'm in a Cleveland suburb on the east side. Not a lot of free time but I know I'm not the only one in this area doing it. There's some who teach about cob, some one making a food forest in the metro parks, at least a dozen small scale urban farmers, plus food not lawn. Plus the laws here have been changed to encourage sustainable stuff in some cities. For instance, Cleveland is zoned agriculture. That's right. A CITY zoned itself agriculture.

That is smart and innovative, I like it!  I've skimmed your year in review and liked the thread.  I was thinking of doing a similar review for 2017.

I really love food not lawns. This is in Detroit, Cleveland and Akron can do it too!

Check out: http://www.ohiocity.org/ohio-city-farm and http://kinsmanfarm.org/the-farmers/ to name a few. I'm not sure what's doing in Akron, but I think we have a good base to go off of and I'd love to see it kicked up a notch. I think the way Cleveland and surrounding area are set now it could support like 75 percent of its food needs locally, if not more. We a already get some ecotourism in the city too. Imagine what would happen if it was the world's first self sustaining modern city? Just day dreaming.

Hi Steve,

We have a small nonprofit in Cleveland that is doing permaculture education. Its called Green Triangle and we have a website and facebook page.  We are hosting a film screening of Inhabit on Jan. 28th and would be a fine chance to meet some local folks doing this work.  Feel free to email me with any questions, josh_koppen@yahoo.com

Look forward to hearing about what you have going on.

thanks,
    Josh
