Greetings Fellow Permies!

My son and I are in the process of trying to buy 5.5 acres on the beautiful Southern Oregon Coast. The ultimate vision is to create a small-scale permaculture farm and demonstration site. The site has a shop (1000ft2), a pond, a well and pump, electricity, great sun exposure, is fairly level, and is a blank slate. Without a permitted dwelling and/or septic, we have been told that the land has "no value" and is not financeable via the conventional channels. We have also tried many, many non-conventional channels. The total asking price (on which the owners are not flexible) is $120,000. We are looking for an investor that would be willing to loan $30,000 for 5-7 years at a reasonably low interest rate. We have a business plan, developed during an attempt to secure a farm loan, a powerpoint presentation describing the history of the site and a water/sector/zone analysis, and a site design.

I'm open to any and all suggestions/alternatives. Thanks for listening and happy permaculturing! 

p.s. This is somewhat cross-posted to the real estate forum

And now I present magical permaculture hypno cards. The idea is to give them to people that think all your permaculture babble is crazy talk. And be amazed as they apologize for the past derision, and beg you for your permaculture wisdom. If only there were some sort of consumer based event coming where you could have an excuse to slip them a deck ... richsoil.com/cards
