As a local here in Cherry Plain, on the MA/NY/VT border, across route 22 from the Beer Diviner, and East Coast Village, my only question is, are you all still sacrificing animals and calling the kontumble spirits (as advertised on your website.and admitted to the Eastwick Press in the 13 Barbies found on Bly Hollow Road story? ) LOL. Not sure how that type of activity fits into "permaculture."
Cherry Plain Sanctuary Farm, home to a lovely Quarterhorse mare, a lovely Standardbred mare, a lovely Standardbred/Haflinger filly, two mules, two llamas, many bees, seven cats, three weimeraners, three humans, and the ever expanding plant kingdom.
Does it count if we only "summer" in Upstate? We have a cabin in Redfield, NY just north of the center of Line Brook State Forest. It's an off grid experimentation ground, I've only just started planting, but there are tons of wild plants ranging from medicinal/berries/mushrooms/nuts in abundance.
