Was reading the elderly permaculture thread. I’ve seen the individual posts of sf wants to work on permaculture farm, etc.

Is there a job board? An organized clearing house of person A wants help with converting an urban house into permaculture? Is there an asset bank? Seems to me that lots of us are talking, but we’re not using those collective idea here to help each other.

For the record, I’m 65 and female with minor health issues. Willing hands and semi skilled. New to permaculture except as an idea. I will help in New England, weather and finances permitting.

You?

Jennie, try under 'experiences'  https://permies.com/c/experiences

There  are 'jobs offered' and 'jobs wanted' sub forums there that might be what you are looking for?

What I see there are jobs and live-in situations. Mostly I was saying I don’t see something like: I’ve got a few free hours every now and then if you would like a pair of willing hands.

I don’t want an internship, not even sure I’ll keep going down the permaculture scale (or up I suppose), or a place to live. And I also suppose that anyone doing this as a permanent lifestyle doesn’t want or need a little help, because they have it already or have done without.

Okay.

Jennie, if I still lived in Vermont, I would take you up on your offer!

My impression of permies is that we are all just spread out too much, so the only practical way we can help each other is when a place to stay is included. And if we came all that way, it makes sense to stay a while.

I think the regional forums could function as you describe for more casual, daytime helping each other. Right now I guess Eastern USA would include New England. If you post there and mention each state you would be willing to help out in, people watching mentions of their home state would see it.

When I lived in Vermont, I used the Front Porch Forum for finding small jobs and people wanting help like what you describe in my local community.
