It must be my elitism showing, I typically think of the great white north being Alaska (excluding south east) and the north part of Canada.



Is there a consensus here? For my purposes, hardiness zone and amounts of white stuff would be important factors, and not just the size of your Latitude 

Also I noticed (after posting) that GWN came under the section of "regional events, resources, jobs, opportunities, etc." - though "etc" would cover most things, I'm not clear what the GWN section is really for.

Should posts relating to permaculture with cold winters be sent here or to the main forum?

I didn't know we had rules about who could belong to what. I wouldn't worry about it.

How about...
If you don't identify with bob and doug mckenzie then you can't post in the GWN section.
If you don't HAVE to change your tires in the winter ....
If you don't suffer from lack of vitimin D in the winter....
If your main winter exercise doesn't come from shoveling snow...

other criteria?
