In Search Of An Expert

I would like to establish an experimental progressive community in the form of a commercial camp with the unique feature of the campers building their own permanent seasonal shelters.  It would be a matter of multiple structures on one property, made primarily from natural materials and recycled materials.  They would be built using green building methods such as earthbag, strawbale, cob, etc. It would be a very affordable place where people who like building things could come and learn about natural building methods as they make their own shelter, that they would be able to come back to and camp out inside of repeatedly into the future.

I have been searching for the right piece of property for this project. I'm looking for 20-40 acres in the country, off the grid. Lately I've been focusing on Okanogan County in north central Washington State. I have never bought any real estate before in my life. I've been trying to get the hang of this land buying business for a while and I'm having a hard time getting a grasp. What I need is an expert, someone who knows all about buying land in the State of Washington, who is very much into Natural Building, and who believes in what I'm trying to do and would like to help. I'm thinking someone who is a real estate lawyer that deals in Washington State, is very pro-Natural Building, and who could guide me through this critical phase of buying the land. Do you know of someone like that?
