It would be great to find a really local permie to talk things over and strategize with for our land development. If you are in McHenry county and potentially interested in 'buddying up' would you let me know?
I am a member of the meetup permies group here - but that's quite city oriented (chicago) in both theme and meeting location. I avoid going into chicago as much as possible! Would love to share ideas locally.
I live in Crystal Lake and at the moment have chickens, turkeys, pigs, and rabbits. Top bar hive all ready and waiting for a nuc this spring. Huge garden. Herbs. I lead a foraging and medicinal herbs meetup group.
Location: Blue Island, Illinois - Zone 6a - (Lake Effect) - surrounded by zone 5b

I'm up in Old Mill Creek, IL (just north of Gurnee), Lake County. About 30 miles northeast from you. I'm curious about your Foraging / Medicinal Herbs group. Do you have any more info on this/? Thanks - Joe
