Hi All,

First time here. Thank you for having me. My name is Matt Wright, I live in Spokane Washington, and up until now worked at a consulting firm doing the cubicle grind via Civil Engineering. I recently decided I need to make a serious move in my life, and have moved on from my job and am looking to gain first hand experience and knowledge of permaculture and sustainable ag type developments. I am currently just an amateur home gardener, but its becoming one of my hottest passions.

Anyways, I have extensive experience in construction, soils, drainage, water systems, road systems and a number of things that could be very useful to many of you. I am currently a licensed Civil Engineer in the State of Washington as well. I am a young 32 years old with very few commitments and hope to one day build my own earthship and permaculture living scenario.

Is there anyone needing a hand in my greater area? I would absolutely love to discuss any labor, design, or mentoring type scenario with you even if you are far away.

Thank you so much. I love you guys.

Matt Wright

I have my PDC and we own a 10 acre organic herb farm outside of Colbert just north of Spokane on Hwy 2. You should come and visit. We are short on cash but long on plans and natural resources (rocks, trees, saplings, etc) with which I plan to built my high tunnels and greenhouse. email is foote.thom@gmail.com. We hosted 3 WWOOF'ers this summer and plan to host a couple more next season. Come visit. If nothing else it might give you some ideas for your own place. You might also post on spokanepermaculture.org, our local website for a local permies' group that are active.
