- Feb 1, 2009Try to find "Transition Town" groups; they deal specifically with low energy / resilient systems and base a number of their core practices on overall permaculture philosophy. They should be quite receptive to NF, especially if it is presented as low energy / resilient.

I've not, formally, but I'll bet Peak Oil forums/meetings would be a
good venue for that sort of thing. I would think that peace groups
and social justice groups would also be interested. Food co-ops often
have forums that are public or semi-public.
Toastmasters is always looking for people to make speeches, especially
if they're new to public speaking.
