My name is Orion. I am 25 years old. I have 5 acres in Washington State where some friends and I are working to build a sanctuary/permaculture hobby farm. This Spring I will be setting off on a journey through Oregon, California, Arizona, Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Illinois, Colorado, and Montana plus the states in between. There are many reasons for my journey a few of which include visiting and reconnecting with friends and family and revisitig my birth place. It is also a quest for knowledge, experience, and new friendships. I want to broaden my permaculture skills and deepen my connection to the Earth. I will be collecting seeds and plant genetics to preserve and return here to the Sanctuary. I would like to meet as many like-minded people as possible along the way. I have many skills and am a professional carpenter, studying arborist, and landscape artist specializing in edible, organic landscapes and plants native to the PNW. I am also looking for places to fill up on pure/chemical free water along the way, wells, etc.

Hi Orion;

I wish you luck on your journey. It sounds exciting!

I have added this thread to the wwoofers forum, and deleted the other thread you started. Rather than have multiple threads, this same thread can be added to different forums. Keeps things tidier.

Safe journey!
Tracy

Thank you. Can you tell me how to share a thread to another forum? Also, I am very familiar with woofing and while I am happy to help people, I will not be wwoofing or seeking wwoofing arrangements. I will just be travelling and visiting and helping people along the way, I'd love to meet people who are doing and offering wwoofing though.

Okay, perhaps we can add it to Volunteers? Let me know which forums (up to 3) you would like your thread to be in, and I'll add them for you as you do not have the 'power' to do so.

Your post isn't clear about your intentions, and what you are looking for. Are you looking for places to stay during your journey, perhaps in exchange for some work? Or are you just wanting to hear from people who are practising permaculture so you can visit them during your travels?

Let people know what you're looking for, and you're much more likely to get some responses!

I am just looking to connect with other permaculture people to meet and visit along the path. With the right people, I hope to build long lasting friendships, potential business partnerships, and learn from one another as much as possible. Permies and Earth and Nature reverent people are the only people I can really socialize with. I will be visiting many people on my journey already, but there's a lot of space in between and a lot of amazing things to see and people to meet. I'm just opening the door for the universe, so I'm really not sure where else to post it.

BTW, auto correct or something edited my handle/login name. It's supposed to be Cascadian Rogue. Any chance you can help with that?

Looks like your itinerary doesn't bring you quite far enough east to visit us in southwestern Michigan, where my wife and I will be in the first few months on our land  Wish you luck on the trip, sounds like an adventure

We have a primitive camp site available and several permacultural projects in the works.

We are in Wyoming. I am learning about permaculture and trying to create an urban homestead situation in Casper. We are considering a longterm situation in the future in the PNW ourselves. Please feel free to visit on your journey. Stop in for dinner or lunch or whatever works.

my partner and i have 20 acres in toute WA. WHere are  you at? would love to have you stop by. Theres no warmth for sleeping though, we don't have a house yet. But a day visit if you're close would be great! A longer visit when the nights warm up a bit is also welcome. perhaps we could be your first stop!
