SPMeetupOrganizing

Current things to do:

  • application for SWS Festival
  • arranging table share
  • Possible Meetup topics:
    • Movie nights:
    • Seed Saving - Thinking about seed saving. We might start a project that each member could save a particular seed, then we could all share them. I suggest this because growing for seed has some differences from growing for food and growing for seeds requires a certain separation between related variety plantings. Other than checking neighbors gardens for cross pollination, the separation of our current members would help, in that way. It reminds me of a scifi movie future world where books were being burned/banned and there was an underground group where each individual memorized a specific book. So they became known by the book name. So we could have Mr Kale, Ms Chickweed, etc....ST 3/14/09
    • Cob Oven construction/workshop/workparty: After attending the pizza party at the UW student farm, I feel more committed to build a cob oven either here at my place in Seattle, or on Vashon, or both. I suggested it to Dave on Vashon and he thought it was a good idea.ST 3/14/09
    • Permie tours of neighborhoods. Kelda's idea - ST 3/14/09
  • Possible garden shares:
    • Catherine Gile and Garnet Brown--AM 3/21/09
      • near Home Depot
      • near Rite Aid
    • Becca Campbell--AM 3/21/09
      • Burien

I think we should put to do lists out where we all can see them and edit them. Perhaps we can group them by something like Projects, Meetup topics, Other organizations, Links...

Right now we need to be firming up the next Meetups, getting back with Brian about a June presentation and figuring out who will need to do what, filling out a SWS Festival application (and then figuring out who will do what). What else?

I wasn't thinking of something open to the world but just for the organizers as a working space where we can capture things. Have a list of possible meetup topics for instance. Capture all the links Maria has been sending in one place. Then it's possible to choose what we want to publish.

I think the future of SPG will eventually be more neighborhood based, cool projects can be undertaken by folks who are neighbors.

As such, what I'd like to see SPG offer is 'permie tour of ballard', 'permie tour of west seattle', etc. Where people bike around, check out cool gardens and cool house retrofits, and maybe end it all with a potluck at someone's house.

Not only would it be fun for neighbors to show off, but it would be a great way for someone new to the neighborhood (and especially if they're fresh out of a permaculture design course) to get to know what's going on around them.

And then to get involved in something nearby...
