Post a sign, with a hidden in plain sight "mark" that indicates "permies"? Like a hobo sign? (I actually like this one, but nobody has agreed on "the sign" yet ...)
Put up a website that shows the PC planning in so much detail that most folks' eyes glaze over, they get bored, and move on? Only permies make it through the gauntlet, and actually see the locality details?

Our folk might be reclusive but they almost always have a homemade product they'd like to barter, and at the very least a sign at the road that says "Fresh Eggs" lol

Or something like that ...
Burn this (bee & trail) as a symbol in a discreet portion of your property signage, and the rest of us will know that Permaculture is done here!
Submit your own choice for symbols!
check out the Facebook groups like what's happening (insert town here) and post a question. We've found all sorts of local beef and produce places, soaps, honey, you ne it. Then check them out. Flash some permie gang signs and see what comes of it
Serene Da wrote:Hi everyone,
I'm new to permies. I'd like to find other permies or folks who have experiences living off-grid within my neck of the woods in Central Canada (i.e. Ontario & Quebec provinces). Does anyone know where on here or elsewhere online that I can reach out to others within my vicinity?
Thanks in advance!

Love the permies gang sign, but quite difficult to do, just tried it

Also Bee image to maybe mark your location on google maps - unfortunately that's the only great source around for working with.
New to permies as well, but based in Europe, so I'm considering a similar set-up for more regional connections.

I've been dodging Facebook for some time, but I know there are lots of good info out there from it.
Permies gang sign....does one already exist? If not, then I was thinking something like three fingers up & held sideways (representing the "E" for equilibrium). I'm looking for balance in everything; leave no rocks un-turned...in search for that elusive balance.
