I've come across some resources that I really have been getting a lot out of, and so want to share.
I think they'll be especially great for those of you in New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania (PA), as they are nearby:
1. Holden Arboretum
http://www.holdenarb.org I've attended 2 events that surprised me in their permaculture content:
a. June 15th, a "Tree Flash" event, where the CEO (!) of the Arboretum and another of the botanists, did a tour of 6 species of trees, and presented detailed info and answered questions. I got my questions about PawPaws answered, as they have a good patch there. They were obviously no strangers to the words 'permaculture' and 'guilds'.
b. July 20-21, Forest Farming workshop. This was about "conservative production": what you can produce and use from an intact forest.
(I regret not posting this ahead of time for you, but I was only able to go due to being forced to cancel other plans, due to an accident on my bike!)
http://www.holdenarb.org/home/forestfarmingworkshop.asp What I found remarkable was the low cost / low effort of producing / harvesting / stewarding forest products, especially if you are producing for your own use, or your use, plus some to sell.
And, the other speaker was Bob Beyfuss, "Mr. Ginseng"
If you are considering stewarding ginseng, he is expert; his website:
https://sites.google.com/site/drbobsginseng/ Mr. Beyfuss also presented some really interesting info about leasing forest land for hunting, that opened my eyes, not being a hunter myself.
Much cheaper than I'd thought to set it up, and more options than I'd considered (eg can restrict to just bow hunting, etc.).
Nothing to add to your insightful list, I've opened several of your links in 'new tabs' to check out just now.
What I would like to do with this post is simply give recognition and thanks for your taking the time to share this. It's been a few months since you posted, and over 300 of us have read it, and I'm sure that more than a few of the others on this site also appreciate your effort.
Have an awesome day!
