The Neighborhoods USA Conference was May 21 to 24 and is now over. I organized a panel presentation titled "Creating A Neighborhood Food Culture", architected a tour of 6 sites in our perma zone with awesome dinner for 40 people afterwards and set up my portable 25 foot mural at the conference site.
But first, I want to write about a recent trip, to north Texas in late April.
Dated info below.
Time for not one, but two new blogs.
Coming up over the next few days -
1] A recent trip to Texas - late April. Observations on transportation, climate change and my brother's in progress up scale Shit Hits The Fan retreat.
2] The 2014 Neighborhoods USA Conference is scheduled for May 21 to 24 and hosted by the City of Eugene [Eugene is where I live]. That report will be next week because the event has not happened yet.
This conference includes local food and going green as 2 of 5 core themes. Pretty good. A group from our neighborhood permaculture zone will make a panel presentation "Creating A Neighborhood Food Culture" and we will host a 3 hour site tour of our perma zone for 40 to 50 people, most of whom are from other parts of the country.
Neighborhoods, USA is a national non-profit organization committed to building and strengthening neighborhood organizations.
The organizational mission of NUSA has, since its inception, been to build and strengthen neighborhood associations and to promote productive communications and collaborations between those associations and both the public and private sectors. More info
Neighborhood associations can play a huge role in greening our communities - Ideal for moving permaculture more into the mainstream.
So check back for both blogs. The Texas report will be on line by Wednesday.
