Looking to see permaculture in action and be inspired. Last night, I listened to PW podcast #'s 43-45 and it would be great to see the ideas and principles that were discussed on the podcasts working on the land. Any thoughts or recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

Definitely worth the trip, and it's more in the direction of where you're going.
Get in touch if you're going by Corvallis Oregon and want to see a more residential scale project:
I absolutely would love to see beaverstatepermaculture, looks like its just a small jog off our path.
