Hi, I'm from Pittsburgh, PA. I'm in the process of purchasing 14 acres of farm land south of Pittsburgh, and have been devouring Permaculture books for 6 months, when I discovered it. Anybody from this area?

Thanks Chadwick, glad to know I'm not alone! Have you done permaculture yet?

Just got my PDC this summer, and have been doing a lot if this for years without any name to call it or structure to guide it, I take care of campgrounds as a career, I have overseen from 100-288 acre camps, and you tend to use similar techniques in large property management. As in you don't plant 50 trees to start a new forested area, you let it go wild and select the species you keep that fit your needs.

There is another fellow here that is even closer to you, I'll go look for the name....and there is three sisters farm near me that does tours, they gave a great well established design in place there you could see.

Hey Bob, My wife and i live in Pittsburgh,Highland park area. We are looking to start a homested and a small CSA in the next couple years. We are looking to do a bunch of workshops and start working towards our PDCs in the upcoming year as well. https://www.facebook.com/HazelwoodFoodForest?fref=ts this group is going great things in the city and could be a good resource.
If your ever in the area stop by for a beer.
Cheers,Ryan
