Hi everyone! I'm new to permaculture but have been interested in sustainability and intentional communities for many years. I've lived in the PNW most my life, a majority of that time in Seattle. I'm in Portland now and am loving the energy here. I'm also loving the energy on this site. So amazing to find such a large number of people with shared interests! I'm looking forward to getting to know you all better and hope to make some strong connections.
Yeah, there's a ton of stuff here. It's good to check out the "Similar Threads" which are located at the bottom of most pages. This enables surfing. The search function doesn't always seem to find everything, for some reason.
I'm in Vancouver (temporarily), living with family. Before then I was in SE Portland. Before that, I was in Seattle.
Location: woodland, washington

all nice places, potentially. before moving here, I lived near Greenlake in Seattle. fairly shitty apartment I lived in, but I miss the neighborhood.
Vancouver... has its charms. there are really good things happening there despite some really obnoxious people in positions of power and a fair number of pretty serious missteps going back at least a generation.
I mostly stick to the northern half of Portland, because of proximity. I loathe driving, and public transit into Portland from Woodland is not exactly expeditious. there are a lot of like-minded folks in Southeast, though.
