Dropping this introduction here for folks to ignore
I've followed permies.com for a long long time. I could have sworn I had a login from a few years back, but when I went to "forgot my password" for all of the email addresses I might have used (that I could think of) none of them came back as valid, so I just signed up anew (or for the first time, maybe.) I got introduced to permaculture by following the Survival Podcast (TSP) by Jack Spirko. I took the online PDC offered by Geoff Lawton and got my certificate late last year. We live in the middle of Conway right now, but the land we live on is in the cross hairs for a college that is buying up blocks of land around us. We've been wanting to move for quite a while (something with more land would be nice) but we've not found a chunk in our price range that is close to where I work now (yet.) I was let go from my job in Conway back in February, but I'm working for another company in Little Rock at this time, and the pay is better. We'll keep looking for a place near L.R. (to cut the drive time... I lose about 2 hours out of my day just to the commute) and hopefully something will pop up soon.
Even though we plan to move, we'll be doing some stuff this coming Spring. We figure to "get it in the ground" and if we decide to move, we'll just "dig it back up and take it with us." Planning to put in some black currants and some hazelnut shrubs (dwarf variety.) We will probably record what we've done in a blog or similar as we go.
