I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions for a good nursery in Ohio. I'm in east central Ohio but would be willing to travel. I've been ordering a lot of plants online. I'd like to find a good nursery that understands permaculture with people I could ask for guidance.
Have you had any luck finding anyone? There are lots of us who garden and are flirting with sustainability, particularly in the Johnstown, Mt. Vernon, Fredericktown corridor. I'm not a full-blown permie convert, but I'm gradually moving in that direction.

I am in that area, between Hanover and Fallsburg. I've mostly been finding resources online. There is a permaculture nursery in Cincinnati, but that's a bit of a haul. I've been ordering plant cuttings online as it's much more economical and growing from seed where I can.
were in columbus, found a few cool nurseries in ohio, ive visited a few of them they are pretty spread out. . if your in the columbus area you can get a good selection from garden centers and the osu school plant sale
klyn nursery, in cuyahoga county, need to set up an account, very high quality wide range of things from herbs to trees, not too many fruiting cultivars but lots of cool and weird plants
we just visited a nursery in kentucky run by a guy named cliff england www.nuttrees.net
he has awesome plants . . we just bought some jujubes, late blooming almonds from iran, asian pears and persimmons, timber bamboo.. . only 3.5 hrs from columbus
Richard, they had few perennials, not that many plants at all really.
So I thought I must have just come at a bad time, yet inquiries into commen permaculture plants were met with disinterested replies in the negative. I finally simply asked for recommendations for edible landscaping (the term "permaculture" did not seem to ring a bell with them). They directed me to some sad looking currents, and the small selection of fruit trees.
Even their annuals were over priced.
They did have quince, for what its worth. ..
Check out the new thread called "Ohio Permies (people) and Ohio Resources" -- you might find what you are looking for there.
New to Detroit. Looking to help out with current permaculture and urban farming projects. Here is my blog from when I was an urban homesteader in Ohio but I am continuing to post about our suburban adventures in Permaculture. http://crunchymamasurbanhomestead.wordpress.com/
