i am 23, live in des moines washington just outside of seattle. the college i am attending is in the process of getting a grant to fund an orchard project. the project is not official yet but i was fortunate to hear about it from my professor and am now attending meetings to get the project going. i am also in the mist of establishing a permaculture club/organization at the school which will provide funding once the group is established. i have no experience in permaculture besides being self taught, i do landscaping(which i disagree with but thats besides the point). my question is how i should structure the club to fit the permaculture design as well as get people interested. my goal is to build a community on campus, help people learn how to use there potential and try to steer the orchard project as well as future projects toward permaculture and away from the urban agriculture.

Words of advice? suggestions? tips? direction?

I am in Seattle (new) and going to South Seattle College that has an orchard (COWS), and I'm wanting to start a club for additional funding and organization.  I'm curious about how to best get these things going and utilizing the resources the college has.  How have things progressed since you've posted this?
