The aim of this Meetup is to foster education, support and community for sustainable living. You don't have to have a homestead, own property or be in an intentional community to participate. It's about sustainable lifestyles and movement-building wherever we are. Activities include talks, workshops, work parties, demonstrations, resource/information sharing, meals, socials, projects and other doings to foster sustainable living.
