There's a big community of permaculture folks in KC. Our group ranges all the way from Tonganoxie KS to independence, MO and far north up to st Jo as well.

I've got some hydro experience myself.

How do I go about finding it? Is it on Facebook? Or do I just have to travel?

I live about an hour from Lawrence and like their scene. You might network with the Kansas Permaculture Institute based there: https://www.kansaspermaculture.org/
And there's also the Lawrence Fruit Tree Project that I believe is Permaculture based: https://www.sunriseprojectks.org/lawrencefruittreeproject

I am about three hours south of Lawrence Kansas. What do you plan on growing in your hydroponic farm?

We are here in lawrence!  We would love to meetup, the farmers market are a great place to start. Hyvee is also very open to local farmers from our experience.

Have you looked into building a Rocket Mass Heater?
Or a Rocket Oven to cook bread?
