My family just relocated to the Washington Aberdeen area last week, and I would like to meetup with some people in the area and talk about things like homesteading, permaculture design, and ham radio. The topic currently at the forefront of my mind is chickens and building a chicken coop / paddocks.

-Andrew
Thanks

Hi Andrew,

I met some really awesome people from a group in Twin Harbors or Grays Harbor back at a NW Permaculture Convergence in 2008. They didn't call their group a Transition Town group (if I recall correctly), but they were definitely doing and learning together in very permaculture ways - including ham radio. Cannot for the life of me remember the name of their group, darn it. They had an excellent website, too.

Great idea to post about nursery and homesteading supplies in the area. Your second post had me Googling again to find this group for you, but I'm stuck, sorry.

Best of luck!

Jocelyn

Ah! Twin Harbors Community Coalition! Looks like their website is no longer up. Darn. In 2008, a guy from their group gave a fantastic presentation on alternative energy tech and tax credits.

If you have their old web address I could try to look it up on the internet Archive site.

Brilliant. www.twinharborscoalition.org (I loaded it into archive.org to confirm it's the group I was thinking of, and it is.)

Hi Andrew this is another Andrew

We're not up near Aberdeen, but in the South Central Washington. Thought I'd pop in and say hello! and let you know that we'll be hosing a workshop on establishing food forests on our 130 acre site this coming april. If it is something you're interested in checking out, the page for the event is:

http://www.windward.org/2.0/events/permaculture_5april2014.php

And of course, if you want to learn more about what we're up to you can see check out our main website:

Hope you're able to conjure up a local community and get some systems going with your chickens

Cheers,
Andrew
