Someone posted in the Texas Permaculture Design Projects Facebook group:

If someone were to ask, "Where can I find an established permaculture design in your area?".
Where would you send them?...I want to create a list of sites in our region...I'm sick of drooling over projects in far off places via YouTube. I would love to start documenting what is working here.


And I thought, "What a great question!" However, I didn't have any solid leads in my mind. "Established", according to the FB poster, means, "Mature systems. Abundance, What not..Buildings, gardens, community, social justice systems, etc."

Anyone have any first hand answers - or even second hand leads?

Thank you, Miles and Aaron. Actually, one of the only places we could come up with on the FB group was Hill Country Natives, the day 2 stop of this past weekend for the Food Forest workshop. It's a great location, and Mitch is a great guy.

Others may have hidden gem sites to share. I know many more sites are on their way to becoming "established". I know mine is
