In Chicagoland, hoping to start a permaculture community in Missouri or Tennessee

We're in the very early planning stages of a permaculture community. My wife and I are saving money, and we currently live in the Chicago suburbs. Our likely target areas (MO or TN) have a number of on-paper benefits, such as low taxes, low property costs, no building codes, and a zone 6 climate (we're a little tired of Chicago winters.) Our short-term goals are to meet some folks in our current area who are like-minded and see if we'd click enough to start a small community one day. We have a tiny bit of passive income from real estate to pay the taxes and handle food that we're unable to grow ourselves. We're newbies in the permaculture thing, but we're definitely diving in head first! So if you are interested in meeting up, please respond and we'll sit down and talk it over!
