I’ve been frustrated with how disjointed the Permaculture community in Philadelphia is. Lots of people are doing really cool things, but these different projects aren’t always very visible in the community. I’m starting what I hope will be a monthly meetup for Permaculture folks in Philly. A monthly movie night / potluck where we’ll screen a permaculture related film and share food and stories about our projects. I hope this can turn into a venue for people to share ideas and organize for projects, but for now, let’s just get together and watch cool, permaculture-related films.
The first meetup will be Monday December 8th at 4029 Market St in Philadelphia, Pa at the Repair the World office. We’ll screen “The Fruit Hunters,” a film about plant diversity and lustful obsession with exotic fruits. We can gather at 7PM to share some food and meet one another. We’ll start around 7:30PM with the film, ending around 9PM. Bring some food to share if you’d like. This is a free event, so come out and meet some other Philadelphia permaculture folks!
Here’s the trailer for the film we’ll be watching
If you ever want to talk about meetups as a tool to connect a disjointed community, let’s talk! We’ve been working that angle for a few years, with lessons learned.
