I'm a bit ahead of the rest of my family in vision. (My wife and I have 5 awesome children, ages 4 - 16.) It would be really helpful to my wife and children to see and experience what some of the outcomes can be. It'll be easier for us to work together if we share a common vision. We've seen a handful of beautiful farms and homesteads. We'd like to see more of everything across the permies landscape.
There are many ways to learn about permaculture, natural building, animal husbandry, herbalism, etc. Is anybody aware of or provide a service for those tourism-types of permaculture experiences? This might be getaways for a weekend, a week, or longer -- for individuals, couples, or families -- structured instruction, hands-on experiences, casual tours, or unstructured time to wander, observe, and process feedback -- rooms for rent, or place to set up a tent.
This might be a good thread at the intersection of the education and regional categories.
If you know of somebody willing to entertain such an idea, publicly advertised or not, feel free to contact me offline. My particular interests are within a day's drive of the mid-Atlantic.
