"the land" has been used to refer to both properties or the 200 acres. So it is now confusing. Plus, it's is terribly boring.

So, as the supreme commander, I decree the following namey-bits:

the laboratory: the big chunk of land

basecamp: the little chunk of land with the little house and the big shop

the project = the lab + BC

In about two years, TL will be divided into four pieces, sometimes called sections.

The first section: oehla

The second section: perm

The third section: symboo

The fourth section: huspa

I got the south field, the east field, the north field, and the west woods.
I should be ok as long as the planets axis stays steady.

I was just typing "the project" and it just seemed a little hokey and awkward to me. I am suggesting "The Proving Grounds" instead.

Sitting here at Double Front Chicken in FABULOUS downtown MISSOULA,MONTANA, might I suggest a revision of "The Project" to "Paul's Permaculture Proving Ground (PPPG)". Been thinking about this for awhile - it has cachet, rolls off the tounge nicely and shows Paul's dominion and authority over an important experiment and empire!

For purposes of establishing my bona fides - I have less than a hand full of podcasts to listen to before I can say I've listened to ALL OF 'EM.

I have a question and didn't feel a whole new thread was worthy. Sorry if I'm being a dumb fuck for asking here, I have listened to 80 Percent of the podcasts by the way. Ok my question about the laboratory is has building of the first Wofati started? I thought I heard in a recent podcast that one was, 'sposed to begin in June. I'm so excited to see one I can't contain my excitement about the project! Thanks Paul

I am also very interested in the first wofati. I was captivated by the concept and have read everything on the forum about the topic. I cannot wait to see the concept brought to life.
