WELCOME to The Sensical Society!
We're a 'scout-like' group for thoughtful adults,
promoting a non-nonsensical approach to life... with a sense
while not ignoring the deadly seriousness of life on planet Earth
Our aim is to encourage well-rounded, prepared, and sensical citizens.

which they can document their own story, knowledge, opinions, jokes, and any
information that they would like to keep on hand for themselves or to share
with others. Why let big institutions dominate the news & information sharing?
Let your voice be heard! You can organize your NOTEBOOK by
topic, like our Zoom meetings are organized.
We host 2 meetups a month > 1 in-person (2 hours) usually at a Philly park,
and 1 zoom call (1+ hour).
For practical purposes, the in-person meetups will be mostly plant walks

we will start out with our Monthly Topic, so that

discussion on any topic members want to discuss.
