I was living in Sumter, work in Eastover ( and just moved there) and will soon be looking for -/+ acre in Hopkins or somewhere just outside of Columbia city limits.
Just started volunteering at City Roots (cool place) and have been told about a guy that teaches some courses nearby.
I would love to network with all of you that are in the Columbia area.

We just worked with the Furman University organic farm to bring Zev Friedman down from Asheville to give a two-hour presentation on how Permaculture can heal land and social conflicts. Here's the link of the Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/445484185526915/
Also, you're pretty close to Asheville which has more permaculture stuff going on than anywhere else in the SE USA. I'm sure you'll head up there often for classes, workshops, and networking.
Welcome to South Carolina!
