TP Birth group on surface of another group

I'm trying to birth particles that stick to the surface of another particle group without using a "node" helper.

I'm trying to basically procedurally build groups on top of one another as a form of practice but have come to standstill as I can't use a group as node. To clear it up, I'm basically trying to do what follows:

I have Group A, I want to stick Group B onto the surface of Group A, and then I want to put Group C on the surface of Group B and so on....

Hopefully I made sense, all help is much appreciated.

This is what the 'particle shape' input of the surface position helper is for

Awesome thanks! I'm coming from Particle Flow so I'm just trying to take what I know in that and apply it to TP. Also, your DVD's are a great help so far!
