Hi everybody at permies, hows it going?

My name is Andrew, I'm from nyc and im 28. I'm very excited this summer i will be moving to a farming incubator in Central Florida to start a small farm, based on the ethics and principles of permaculture. I only recently found permaculture but it has taken over my life and one day i'd like to teach it to others.

I'm taking a fantastic PDC being held by Andrew Faust (check him out on youtube) and ive registered to take the upcoming workshop with Sepp Holzer in Montana being held by Zach Weiss ( I'm very excited to meet the man who inspired me to become a farmer, thank you Zach!!!)!

I am happy you guys are interested in the incubator and i'd love to share, feel free to ask me any (or as many) questions as you'd like. Here is the link http://bigsmallfarm.org/


The property is nearly 400 acres located in central florida, it is designated as agricultural land and the propery manager leon is a very friendly guy who you can email anytime through the website (and he loves permaculture as well). Right now we are looking to get more people on the property so he will be glad to hear from you, if you could let him know that i sent you i would really appreciate it! I will post more details tomorrow but i just got home from my PDC and my brain is fried (too much learning for one day lol).
