I'd like to be part of a community of people with whom I can share new experiences and adventures such as making our own solar ovens or building a chicken coop. So, I've started a new Meetup group called NE Portland Homesteaders - a place for people to share urban homesteading knowledge and friendship, while helping each other achieve a higher level of food and energy independence. Let's support each other as we learn more about diverse topics from food preservation to raising livestock in the city. On February 18th, this group is going to have it's inaugural meeting where we get to know each other and start to plan for our future. If you've ever wanted to "grow your own" now is a great time to join. You can get more details and RSVP through Meetup - hope to see you there!
