Wannabe natural-farmers meetup at Cubbon Park - June 13

A bunch of Permaculturists / zero-farming enthusiasts will meet tomorrow in Bangalore. There is no specific agenda. This is more of a get to know each other meeting besides the common theme that all participants are interested in some form or other of sustainable farming.

Venue: Cubbon Park M.G.Road entrance (opp. Jewels de Paragon building)
Start time: 10:00 AM
Date: 13 June 2009

Personally, I have the following three specific questions to the participants:

1. Why are you interested? What got you started? What have you done thus far?
2. What are you looking forward to?
3. Can we do anything locally while we're still in Bangalore? (I have a couple of ideas that we can work on, either together or distributedly: From transforming the "ornamental" gardens of the various IT Parks to a few Guerrilla gardening ideas).

... And, If you have any heirloom seeds or demonstrable interesting hacks or pictures / illustrations, used books related to gardening/farming/nature ("One Straw Revolution"? :) ) or any other interesting materials that you'd like to share / show, please do bring it along! I emphasize One straw revolution because I myself had difficulty obtaining a copy in Bangalore. I had to resort to ordering an imported edition off an online book retailer.

All are Welcome.
