Since we live in an area where we seem to be scatterd and rare, would anyone be interested in a fall meeting of some type?

If any one had the land it would be great, or maybe a lake or camping spot?

Just an idea.

Hi, Mick...great idea! We have plenty of space here (forty wooded acres) for camping and could set up outdoor cooking and sawdust toilets for groups. I already had been thinking about an October 'digging' party for some perinnials here....I am open to possibilities. There is also Good camping at Blanchard Springs Caves near here and then there is the Buffalo River...sometimes September/October is the best time to be there.

You are invited to visit me in Rich Hill,MO on November 2,1913 between 10 am and 4 pm. Lets keep it really simple. Bring your own food and drinks.[no alcohol] It would be fun to swap seeds and/or plants. For people from a distance there is motel in town or camping within thirty miles. Id need to check out locations. I live on a lot within city limits but have a start on hugelkulture. Just built a cob oven in August we can fire up.
I think I'm sort of central from looking at the addresses on posts. Mick is maybe the farthest west.
If you would like to come please let me know with a post.

@Granny
My dad was born in Rich Hill. I dont know much about the town
. What is the population size now?
On your plants and seeds, are they heirlooms? Thats what I save and grow.
Sounds like fun, having a permie area close by.

Donna and others interested in getting together this fall.
Thanks for the reply. Rich Hill is about 1400. It is in a recently declared Enterprise Zone on both sides of I-49. So there are opportunities for people with good ideas
and means to implement them. I have a few paw-paw seeds and I will get some of the local pecans . There are several areas where the growers take advantage of pecans ability to survive on flood plains. They also do well as yard trees.
If someone wants to dig them, there is a clump of hardy bamboo that has slowly grown out of the yard and onto the street verge just a block from my place.

Since my first invitation I have been thinking more about logistics. A few tents could be pitched in my front yard and I can put a porta-potty in one of my outbuildings. with my outside hydrant and a rocket stove some could stay here. Say....If many want to stay I might be able to get permission from my neighbor for several tents in his empty field if we rent a pota-john or two!

So here is a repeat; You are invited to visit here in Rich Hill On November 2 The main get-together will be between 10 am and 4 pm on Saturday..
