World Domination

Hello Cassie, Paul and crew,

I see permies.com is now the largest and most active permaculture site on the web! Congratulations!
I would like to suggest more possibility for growing and help the planet, since over 70% of the worlds population lives here in Asia and Africa, a country by country forum for the planet could really help local permaculture groups in each country have a place to huddle and share local material. Right now each group must create their own website, or Facebook and while thats ok, world domination requires a world domination design.
For ideas have a look at how WWOOF International is organized, to serve the global community.
Permaculture is still new here and has alot of growth coming soon.
While "general permaculture principals" apply globally each area does also have heritage farming and natural farming techniques that could be classified as permaculture. local
geology, flora and fauna, animals, plants, foods, weather, altitudes (as Alpine permaculture with Sepp H.)
Due to the unique local nature then can you do something in the forum by continent and then country?
as an example I am a Canadian grew up just north of Missoula, but now live and teach Permaculture on a demonstration farm in NE Thailand. The plants here
are "all" different" from north America, the trees as well and the foods. Local issues are "cooling" not heating. Rocket stoves are only cooking tools
and have little or no use for heating at low altitudes. Foods include all rice dishes, housing needs a good roof and then mostly ventilation year round.

Thanks and hope this helps.

Have you seen all the regional forums? http://www.permies.com/forums/c/3/

There's one for Africa, and others for Asia, South-America/Central-America/Mexico, Pacifica and Australasia

The regional forums are generally grouped according to activity. When one gets really active we start to think about splitting it, but if it stays quiet we generally think it's better to keep them a bit more general rather than have too many completely unused forums.
