I'm excited about the permaculure workshop in Cambrige. I'll be there. I am wondering if you would be game to give a little talk on permaculture for the New Eden Harvest Fair on Sunday, September 27th. It could be a wonderful and simple as giving a tour of Transition's Newburyport's garden plot. If this date doesn't work for you. Perhaps another Transition person would like to do it. Erin
Excellent progress, Charlotte. It appears the time is ripe for a Transition Ipswich group on this site, to give current and future residents a place to gather. Do you know Sister Pat at Cuvilly? She sings with Cantemus, also serves on our board, and would be a great addition to a transition effort in Ipswich. And, she has goats! I'll send her more info today.
Catherine is a garden designer specializing in indigenous plants. She does the nature garden for the Ipswich River Wildlife Sanctuary and also put a butterfly garden in at Ray Morley's B&B on high street. Perhaps the 4 of us can meet sometime. Maybe we can drop over sometime and see your place and vice-versa.
Both my wife Catheine and I know Sister Pat at Cuvilly very well. She was on our list to give the info to. Your megarie sounds like ours. We probably have lots in common besides living around the corner.
Hi Charlotte, sounds good. My wife and I just spent a few days at a wonderful monsatery greenmountainmonastery.org in Vermont and they told us about TT. The website is very good indeed. They are supporting the effort in Montpelier, VT. I just read the transition primer which I downloaded from the web and made a few copies for friends. My home phone is 978-356-7093 and my cell is 978-500-9716. We live on Mill Road with a bunch of lovely critters.
