Ok folks I have seen a few posts about members in NEPA so I wanted to reach out more specifically to those of you in the Luzerne County and surrounding areas. (Lakawanna/Carbon/Wyoming) I am aware of the PASA and the Eastern PA Permaculture group and am trying to narrow down where they meet up. I am in my 30s and am contemplating striking a deal with a family member for a few acres of rough land to get going with. I just wanted to get myself bouncing around these forums and if anyone knows of members that are open to tours and maybe offering a workshop or mentorship let me know. I have gleaned so much information just by reading through these forums I am pretty excited. Thanks guys.

Hi Nathan,
I'm in the same boat you are. Seeking meet ups to build a sustainable community. I reside in carbon county. Been thinking of starting or joining a community for awhile now. Let me know if you want to talk more.

Hi Nathan,

We built a small greenhouse in Plains PA that is dedicated to the principles in and around permaculture. We are focusing on education and outreach to the community to promote more options. We have aquaponics grow beds, a rocket mass heater, biochar, greenbuilding, and hope to do more in the future. You can contact me anytime to come for a tour.

I also work at a local golf course with 473 acres of pastures, woodlands, conifer stands and wetland areas. We have a hugelkulture garden and 3 kinds of composting going on. They are very supportive of new ideas and activites.

Monroe County, here.  Mount Pocono area.  Anyone still around?  Maybe we could start a local group.

Hi everyone! This Saturday (10/15/16) we will be building the first dome on our double chamber cob oven. The oven is located on the beautiful Susquehanna river at Perennial Point in Plains, PA. Work is starting around 8am; weather permitting of course. Anyone is welcome to attend and join in the fun. PM or reply to the thread for details!
