TO PROMOTE SUSTAINABLE LIVING PRACTICES IN THE MID MAINE REGION

Permaculture

Team Leader: Bonnie Sammons

To introduce a design process to integrate earth needs, people needs and ethics of fair share to personal and community solutions for sustainable development.

The Permaculture Team is the newest addition to the Sustain Mid Maine Coalition. We began meeting in the winter of 2015. We’re visiting each other’s homes to determine what we know, building trust, growing relationships and developing networks of connection with each other in preparation for a later stage in which we will develop specific strategies for sharing our knowledge with our communities. We hope to connect with you at one of our future meetings or events!
