I retired here a dozen years ago from Oakland, CA and was fortunate enough to be able to purchase a nice home on 26 acres.  The place has about 1,000 ft of year round creek which runs north/south and splits the roughly rectangular parcel in two, with 2/3rds of the land on the far side of the creek from the road and house. Most of the place is pasture but 8 acres of trees are located on the other side of the creek.  

During my first half dozen years here I was heavily involved with our small, all volunteer humane society.  Two years ago I started volunteering at Plenty! our community farm and food bank   https://plentylocal.org/  and find it both rewarding and enjoyable.

Howdy! welcome to permies!
 
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
