Portland Maine Permaculture, founded in 2005, has more than 1300 members and offers over 40 educational and peer-to-peer learning events every year. It is free to join and events range from skillshares, films, work parties and swaps to full-blown design workshops, field trips and guest lectures. Portland Maine Permaculture is a project of The Resilience Hub, a non-profit that aims to help us build resilience at personal, household and community levels in the face of peak oil, climate change and economic volatility. We do this by actively cultivating resilience-building projects (like Portland Maine Permaculture, Portland Trading Post, Southern Maine GardenShare and others) and by hosting other projects proposed by our members that need a “home” and are consistent with our mission. Permaculture is a design system and set of techniques for creating resilient human habitats and healthy ecosystems. It is modeled on natural patterns and covers a wide range of design areas including food production, shelter, energy, water, wellness, community, culture and economics.
