A New Hampshire Permaculture Town? Todd Workman is leading an effort to revitalize Franklin NH using permaculture. His plans call for: hydroelectric generators to harness power from the river, collecting storm water for reuse, a local winery, and green spaces including an “edible forest” planted with hazelnut trees, blueberry bushes, and grape vines, alternative transportation, becoming a Transition Town, and much more. Todd is looking to bring ecologically balanced development and to put together a real local economy.
He has had successes and hurdles so far, and is in the midst of the work. He’s coming to Portsmouth to tell us about it and see if we might do some work together. Come learn more! We will hear from Todd, share in a potluck dinner, and have a discussion. This is free and open to all, though we will be accepting donations gratefully!
