I'm in Caddo County I am looking for anyone looking to practice Permaculture. Contact me I'm looking to
get a number of projects before the fall.

1 Caddo County Composters there is no program in my city or state so if you have any idea where I should start

2 Finding my way to freedom I need about 800 a month to be free 1200 to be happy.
Anyone interested in helping Im a tinker blacksmith and Graphic Artist(currently t shirt design,

Welcome to permies Brice.

We have a few members here from OK, but not many.
All of the books/DVDs in the world will not 'convert' die-hard folks in farming regions.
However, seeing a neighbor succeed with unconventional methods will certainly get them talking.
(Probably behind your back to begin with, but they will begin asking you questions.)

A food forest that thrives with little to no irrigation (and no chemical$) in that region will certainly pique some interest with the local population. Every success story furthers the cause. We cannot expect to win this battle at once. We need to take an acre by acre approach. There are examples of a few brave soles who have their whole county's farmers asking them "How do you do this?"

Good luck, and keep us informed on any progress you make. Don't be afraid to ask questions.
Will Rogers is our Honorary OKie here, but you'll need to 'cross the Jordan River' before you ask him any questions.

Hello Brice. I'm new here also. I can say your in one HOT part of Oklahoma. This is a very nice site. I have always been interested in permacultur. I love eating out of the woods. Harvesting what I can. We have some very good fungi ,wild garlic, onions, fish and animals around our area. One limiting factor is the ground water issue. But am hoping to learn different ways to get around that. good luck with the granit at Mt. Scott

Hi. I'm in between Tulsa and Oklahoma City. I'm looking at intensive polyculture and wild crafting. The university here is practically owned by big ag so i will have them to deal with. I'm looking forward to spreading chemical free polyculture to the local farmers in my area and working on general abundance in my area.
Hey, I'm supposed to be the guide! Wait up! No fair! You have the tiny ad!
