My wife and I are interested in learning more about permaculture and how to implement it and were wondering if there's anyone in the Charlottesville --> Roanoke --> Danville triangle who might be willing to show a couple tenderfoots around their farm/how they personally implement it.

I am looking for a Virginia skill sharing group. Is Madison VA too far for you?

I'm sorry. I didn't see your reply until today.

I'm not sure whether or not Madison is too far. I think it would just depend on the day/time of year. (Being in medical school, there's not a whole lot of free time)

What do you mean by a skill-sharing group? I'm not too familiar with the term

Skill sharing is a term used in primitive skill events, meaning sharing the skills you have with others.  Also teaching is sometimes the best way to learn.  Years ago I signed up to teach a solar cooking class for 4-H, which forced me to actually get in there and start doing it.   Always good not to reinvent the wheel if you can find a wheel maker near by to show you how it is done.  Also more fun with a like minded group.  Stereo-types of med students are overworked and underslept, commendable if you have time for anything else.
