Hi I just saw this on facebook and I think its awesome. my name is Meagan. I live in Chico where I co-founded and currently co-organize the Chico Permaculture Guild. We do garden wheels and educate our community about permaculture. I also take private clients to design their land---only have one currently. I spend a lot of time going to college but my passions are permaculture, paganism, healing and growth, nonviolent communication, and (*neo*)tantra. I live with roommates in a commune type house. we have a garden in our front yard, and we're getting chickens. i doubt that there are any hot permaculture guys in my area i haven't met yet...but you never know. the truth is i'm still hung up on my ex-boyfriend (that would be funny if he read this somehow) but i'd like to connect with other people who have similar values as me so i can realize that it is possible. and this is something i wouldn't do if facebook hadn't suggested it and it meets my need for spontaneity. peace, meagan
I've been really enjoying this site since a neighbor of mine turned me onto it. Chico is a pretty cool town, and it sounds like you're doing great stuff there. Sometimes a long for a more bustling town with such activity. I'm a couple hours away in Big Bend working to create a commune type permie scene.
Always great to meet people in the area, and I do get to Chico once in a while, having some friends there. If you're ever up here, do come join for a soak in the hot springs.

A big group has bought the hot springs property and other properties too, and say they're going to have permaculture courses and such some soon. It's a neat town with a lot of potential, especially with all the changes coming now, mostly since we've been here.
The commune is finally starting to take shape. I went to workshop the other week up in Oregon with Diana Leafe Christiansen about intentional communities and ecovillages. Of course we have done almost everything that is recommended against up till now, but we're close to having an actual forming document, and some clear strong agreements. We're near, even, to a clearly stated mission and purpose!
Chico eh, I had a few friends go to Chico State. I heard good things about the "permie scene" up there. I'm in San Fran area. I don't think I will be going up to Chico anytime soon, but ya never know. But if your down this way in Bay Area. Let me know. How much does the land go for in your area? It gets real hot to, ya?
But reading your self-description, you sound like Sue, who runs or ran the Chico Peace and Justice Center, would be a friend and ally. If you don't know Sue, it might be fun and rewarding to drop by the Center and say "Hi."
If you do know Sue, tell her that Lee from Phoenix, AKA Joe Six Pack, said "Hi.."
