Indeed we do have 70 acres east of Dallas--closest town is Greenville, Texas. It is mostly open land with two ponds and sites for more ponds and chinampas. We are looking to build an ecovillage of about 30-32 families--Permaculture, off-the-grid, built with the soil on the land via compressed earth blocks. We do have a small, automatic CEB machine. Just starting to open to members. Also have applied for non-profit status for a school. We offer reasonably priced PDC classes, other classes, and doing research for living and growing food in North central Texas. We are starting a farm incubator program for beginning farmers. You can reach me (terry) at 972 251-1532 for further information.
