  I am about to start a several month trip around China and am looking for any Permaculture sites I can find around to check out.  I have been searching online, but have not found a lot. 

  So far I know of the one in the Loess Plateau that had a documentary made about it, but I can't find any specific sites, just an entire region.

  Hangzhou has a small farm, that I've seen on Permaculutre News. 

  Near Guilin also has one. 

  There are several to check out in Hong Kong, but not a lot around beyond that that I'm seeing.

Any ideas or info everyone?  I have looked into the fish/rice farming too, and am looking for good sites to see this.  I also remember seeing a NYTimes article I believe about a farm outside of Bejing starting the big push towards organic farming, which isn't exactly Permaculture, but it's the closest in the ballpark.

I still have a month before I leave, so if anyone has any recommendations I can put it in my route.

Hi Ryan.

I'm about to start on a similar trip. I would love to visit the Loess plateau and see what`s going on. I have no specific information about where to go, but if I don`t find any information, I might take the generalist approach and just go there and see what I find. I speak and read Chinese fluently, so it should be possible to talk to people there and find out what`s going on. I also hope to volunteer at the Hangzhou farm.
