Startup Permaculture group meeting in South Jersey

See also

What do organic gardening, sustainability, energy conservation, and better health and happiness all have in common? They all that fall under the umbrella of permaculture, a method of design that integrates human needs with planetary stewardship to ensure long-term sustainability and preservation of the environment.

That may sound pretty fancy and technical, but permaculture is actually quite basic. At its simplest, it means focusing on the big picture of our health and wellness and the well-being of the earth, while finding better, more environmentally sound ways of doing things – growing food, building more energy efficient housing, and reducing the costs of living so we can work less and enjoy our lives and families.

This is exactly the goal of the South Jersey Permaculture group, who will have their first monthly meeting on Wednesday, January 15th, 2014, at 7:00 p.m. at the Camden County Library at 35 Cooper Folly Road in Atco, NJ. The group will meet to share and discuss topics like organic gardening, agriculture, environmental sustainability and other concerns as they pertain to southern New Jersey. Attendance is free and guests are encouraged to bring their goals, questions, and knowledge.

For more information, visit South Jersey Permaculture’s Facebook page, or the Permaculture Network of NJ’s Meetup site.
