So I have been clicking around your blog and it's inspiring! My family and I live about 20 mi away from Petersburg, KY. I saw that you tried to do a workshop but the Cincinnati/NKY area it wasn't a hit...that's too bad
It's tough around here, lots of people rather consumed with other interests and it's just a materialism/consumerism way of life that's the norm. People act like they don't have the time to care, or it would be too much of a burden.
Anyways, if you happen to have any other days where you are open to outside help coming for a visit/tour/project I would be interested. I'm trying to get my wife into this way of thinking more, but it's a challenge and if I could find a fun way to involve her (and my daughter as well) that would be great!
I currently work full-time during the week at an organic vegetable farm, but this winter I will have some free time and it might be a good opportunity for me to learn more and for you to get some good help.
We also have a 27 acre property about 70 mi. south-east of Petersburg that I am the caretaker of...this is why it is so important for me to learn and get experience so I can do it the right way. I saw you say that you love to teach and I am eager to learn/practice this stuff and want to support people like you who are presenting this information and skillset to the world!
I joined the mailing list so hopefully you are still going strong and there will be updates
Just let it grow already

Hey TY nice to receive a comment back. Yes indeed it is tough around here but by forging a strong community here in Petersburg i hope we can give this area really great examples. I also have local friends here who are doing it as well. So yeah would love to show you around and in the winter is when i do a lot of forestry work, my active forest enhancement program. I do have another teaching opportunity coming up around paw paws and foraging with my stellar teaching partner Abby Artemisia. Always great classes with her and we have a community of people and new comers each time. Would be happy to give you a tour as well. cheers mate
