Hi! I and my partner( and possibly my puppy) are looking for a permaculture practicing place to work on in exhange for a place to stay for the winter months( possibly longer if you need it) . I graduated in June with my PDC and would like to continue to practicie/learn sustainability as I would like to one day be able to teach/help others through permaculture. My partner is into permaculture and although he does not have his PDC, he has been studying it for a couple years and knows more than I do.
We are interested in any permaculture project whether it's a community project or one on personal land. We are currently in Indiana so the warmer the state, and the closer to an ocean the better!
If you want to know anymore please message me! I just started a blog and Facebook page for practice and to show others what I am doing, feel free to check them out

Thanks!

Are you still looking for a place? I have bought an old house (original part built in 1900) in Abingdon, VA and sitting on not quite half an acre with a wooded lot next door and I have been talking to folks in town government and also in local community about turning especially the back 1/4 acre into a permaculture community (demonstration) garden. I have presented to the Sustain Abingdon committee, got buy-in from the guy running the local community college who is also a permaculture designer (to be on Board and help with design) and am in touch with some of the folks in the immediate community. But I can't do it by myself. I can't offer a paying job at this point (my funds are running low) but I can offer housing, contacts and the potential for a paying job once funding is obtained. If you have any interest in finding out more you can get back to me at almanuelnw@gmail.com and we could also get online and chat (Skype, Facetime, Google Hangout). Or call 276-206-8801.

It's in the Appalachians rather than on the ocean but the ocean is closer than Indiana.

The house itself needs quite a lot of work (and limited funds for doing it so plenty of room for repurposing and improvising) outside is ripe for planning and first moves (though still in the first observation year) and plenty to do developing an organization to make it possible not just as an isolated project but as an education site for this area and potentially a model for other sites both private and town-owned in and around Abingdon.

New England winters are not what must folks would describe as warm, but we're a five minute bike ride from the ocean.
