I have a PDC and am looking to gain hands-on experience in permaculture. I currently live in NYC but am looking to move to another area. The Northeast is preferable but would be willing to travel farther. I am interested in gardening, natural building, sustainable living, intentional communities, and have a particular interest in mushroom growing. If you kow of any opportunities, please PM me or contact me at Thanks.

Have you heard of the gapper program at Wheaton Labs? Definitely not in the northeast, but might otherwise be a good fit.

Would you consider Northern Maine ? I have an acre or two that you can work on in exchange for helping me. Work the acreage properly and in short order you could be making money. This is an excellent area to live. Almost all the people are just plain good. There are jobs available as well. We could build you a Cabin on skids. When you put together about $ 3000.00, I know of many in the area that will finance you. Especially if they can see the work you have already completed. Load the cabin on a truck then move to your own place. You will also have the outbuildings you will need to be up and in operation. Things you will need like an outhouse, woodshed on skids, smoker on skids, etc.. I think you get the idea.
They worship nothing. They say it's because nothing is worth fighting for. Like this tiny ad:
