I'm interested in communicating/cooperating with permie folks in and around Siloam Springs in NWA.
I'm slowly trying to get a yard transformation business started in Siloam, and I'd love to get a permaculture community together around here.

Hi Brian,
We are newly in the area just south/east out of fayetteville about 30 miles. Got 10 acres that I am very slowly putting in raised hugelculture beds, have 1 fruit tree guild going and hope to do many more. I have not done any permie courses but since learning about it a little over a yr ago I have been doing quite a bit of reading and slowly doing. I tried to find a local group of permies and was suprised when I couldnt find anything. So I would be interested in being part of a group. The potential in this part of the country for food forests etc is tremendous.

Tracy, I agree. I just sent you a PM replying to a message you posted elsewhere on this site a while back. Maybe some time we can meet up.

Hey me and my wife live on the outskirts of Siloam springs, close to high fill. We are working on a piece of land out here and are looking to meet like minded people in the area. We would love to Share ideas\work and resources.I'm 32 and she is 26 we have a daughter and want to be food independent. We have a couple goats and a couple week old black Angus heifer that we are bottle feeding. We will raise her as a breeding cow and raise her young for beef. We have about 35 25 foot long by 4 feet wide lasangna garden beds we made and around 30 large melon mounds made the same way. It is insane how much cardboard and round bales of hay we have used! We will be putting in fruit and but trees and a nice sized berry patch. Also going to plant about a acre of ginseng in the timber. Just got my pipe bender in the mail, gonna put up a 20x40 greenhouse this summer with a rocket stove for heat.Bees, aquaponics, worm farm and root cellar are all being dreamed about and will come into fruition. But now I'm just rambling.

Cedar Jay Jones, Glad to hear you are in the area.
I have recently moved onto 20 acres on the west side of Kansas, Oklahoma. So I'm still around Siloam Springs.
Right now we are rotating a flock of chickens on pasture with large chicken tractors, building a pole barn for the horses, maintaining a small home garden, raising more chickens, keeping ducks, and planting tons of trees.
I'm hoping to turn this place into a working farm from which I can make a modest living in the next ten years.
Let me know if you'd like to meet some Saturday and talk about things in person. I'd love to see your property and knock our brains together for a while.
Maybe we could meet at a coffee shop in SS some time. I'll buy.
Cheers!

Brian Morsman & cedar jay jones, any chance I could meet up with you all too? I am relocating to NWA end of May-early June. Born, bred, and corn-fed in So Cal and gotta get outta here. Will be learning the lay of the land and scouting for a homestead and wanna be involved with and a friend to like minded folks. Realize I am a green horn with a lot to learn and would like to learn from folks getting it done.
