Seeing as how my Lady and I have decided plan A is to stay in Portland for 5-7 years, I was hoping to network with some fellow permies nearby. I’m looking for someone to bounce ideas off, share surplus with, barter, or do seed swaps with.
Everyone says go take a PDC. Well I don’t want to drop that kind of money, I prefer something more organic. So if your in the Portland area and looking for a Permie friend too hit me up!
I would be up for some kind of connection, to compare notes with others in the area and maybe swap some plants or surplus now and then. I am in SW Camas.
I have a 1/2 acre food forest/forest garden that is and will forever be a work in process. I started it about 10 years ago. I have about 250 varieties of food plants, and 40 species of natives.
My biggest issue is surplus. There is no way I can eat all of it, even with preservation. I would be happy to share or sell extras, but I don't have time to harvest all of it. So I pick what I want and the creatures get the rest.
I’ll have to try subscribing to the mail lists, though I rarely tolerate that much spam in my inbox.
I skimmed through the meetup group. It looks like no actual “meetups” just people looking for work or pdc type things. While I’m not opposed to helping others with their projects, I’d prefer to get to know them a bit first.
We could start by getting together one afternoon. Talk about all thing permaculture/homestead, share our experiences, talk about what would we want from a future "club". Share some yummy food, getting to know each oher in person.
I'm up to host the first one, how about on a Saturday in September? I am located just outside Portland.
When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.

I think that would work great.
I love a woman who dresses in stainless steel ... and carries tiny ads:
