Mapping Us

I wondered if we could have a map of where all of the Permies are.  I would love to know who else is in my area, possibly meet them, and find ways to share (get cuttings!?).  Or when I travel, if I knew I was near someone, it would be fun to ask for a visit.  Alas, my own place is not in the shape yet where I would want visitors...so I know not everyone would welcome random call-ups, but it seems like we could put that information in.

I found this thread:  https://permies.com/t/57396/Add-Permies-Worldwide-map  But it is 3 years old, and had been locked by that point.

Would anyone else find this helpful?

If there was a way to make the information viewable to people logged on to permies only. Then it might be a good idea, but some people like to keep there location private. Which is ok.

You can add location if you would like to your profile. Go to the top of the permies page. Click "my profile" scroll down and click on "general information about yourself" and add information to your location. This allows permies users to share as much or as little info about themselves. As you can see on my profile, I'm located in Victor, Montana, though I don't tell you my street address. If you want more info from a specific user, e.g. getting cuttings, I suggest sending them a Purple Mooseage, also located at the top. Hope this helps.

This will not answer your question ... We have Regional Forums where you can post about meetups, plant sales, or whatever interests you.

Regional Forums

Since I don't know which region you live in I picked a couple of interesting threads:

From Oklahoma and Texas:  https://permies.com/t/40/54072/Regional-seed-swapping-Texans-Oklahomans

This one is from Cascadia:  https://permies.com/t/52406/Cascadia-Bloggers-Websites-Facebooks-Project

I also think a map would be very useful.  Permaculture Worldwide Network has one but it doesn't seem to have the same level of participation as Permies.  Exact locations wouldn't be necessary.

I know there is another Permies Forum member that lives in the same town as me, but we have not met yet. If it is the person I think it is, and I could very well be wrong, they live within sight of my farm. I am not shy, so I am pretty sue they know where I live.

But there are a few others around me I know.

Of course the ideal situation is some Permie buys my homestead that is for sale, and we end up being neighbors! :-)
 
Can you really tell me that we aren't dealing with suspicious baked goods? And then there is this tiny ad:
