I'm new to AR, living in Mena (southwest AR 10 miles from the OK border) for about a year now. I own 200 acres, mostly monoculture trees planted by Weyerhauser over the last 40 years, with lots of hills and rocks. Just reading sepp holzer's book, "Permaculture". Signed up for this forum some time ago, but until I bought this property, permaculture was a pretty word, nothing more. Now I'm in it for good and trying to get started. Would it make sense to anyone else to have a forum just for those in this area of Arkansas who are attempting permaculture along sepp holzer's set of ideas. Sharing knowledge of the right seeds and permaculture techniques for this area would really be helpful to me. Hopefully I'm not the only nut in this part of the world...

Hi, Kevin....welcome to these forums.......the closest we have right now is the regional forum for the south. What name would you suggest for something even more regional? The 'Ozarks' forum is relatively new and took a number of folks wanting it to make it happen Since you are so close to the border would you include an area into Oklahoma? I know there are permies in areas of southern Arkansas......let's hope this post draws them out.....
You might want to begin a 'projects' thread complete with pictures of your progress on your land.

Hi Judith!

I'm not sure what to suggest other than "Ouachita National Forest Region" to describe this area, and that would also encompass some of eastern Oklahoma as well. I have posted on the Ozarks forum, but apparently there aren't a whole lot of permies in this part of AR. As soon as I really get underway I will open a projects thread with pix of progress on my land. Sure could use some guidance, though, in specifics for my region. About the only things my land has in common with Sepps is all the ridiculous monoculture tree planting and the rocky soil.
