Sign Up for the Root Simple Meetup

It only took six years, but I finally put together the beginnings of an events page for this website using To see those listings go to the event page or check out sidebar on the right. You can also sign up for the Root Simple Meetup. Right now the Root Simple meetup will list events we’re speaking at, workshops we’re teaching and other goings on we find interesting. Most of the events will take place in the Southern California area.

To those of you outside of SoCal, I can’t say enough good things about the Meetup interface. Unlike Facebook, which seems to exist to get us all to work for free harvesting marketing data, Meetup is about fostering face to face meetings.

Hope to meet many of you in person soon!

  1. I’ve been hosting a book-trading meetup for about three years now, and I love it. It has been a great organization to work with, very supportive, and not at all creepy like Facebook.

  2. Hey wow! I started a meetup last November for people to get together and do homesteading projects (we started with the balms, lotions, and soap from Making It). I was just thinking tonight about how you guys talk about community in The Urban Homestead and how thankful I am for that above everything else I’ve gotten out of your books. Thank you!

    • That’s fantastic, Joss! And we’re so amazed and flattered that you’re using Making It projects. Writing a book is such an abstract thing–it always strikes us as surreal whenever we hear about anyone actually reading it. 😉
