I've added your post to the regional forum for the Rockies, which might help.
Are there any particular skills or interests that you think might be relevant? Permaculture interests cover a wide range of topics, everything from producing clothing, growing food, preserving food, nurturing wild life, building, mechanic skills, ect. Even business skills have their place. Even if someone doesn't have a place on their own land, maybe they know someone looking for a talent your family has.

We've got mountains here in Alaska.  Would you be interested in learning how to survive an Alaskan winter in the Bush?  It's definitely challenging.

Would be a challenge for sure. Can you tell me more about your outfit.

Hi Gabriel,

We don't really have an "outfit".  We have 15 acres here that is now beyond our abilities.  I have a post on it here:  Homesteading in Alaska opportunity

It's in the Permaculture Real Estate forum.  

We've lived here 5 years and have tried gardening and a few other "permaculture" ideas during that time.  It's a hard life and when my husband lost his leg this last fall, the winter was almost more than I could handle on my own.  (We're not spring chickens.)  We're looking for alternatives.

Blessings,

SueJean

Hey! Nice to see your post. My partner and I are in western WA, an hour north of Portland. We are on 20 acres with 2 creeks and south facing mature woods mixed with 10 year post-logging forests and some clearings. We are always looking for open minded people who want to come learn how we make it work. We use very minimal electricity, 40 watt solar panel, and do not have running water. We use rain water and creek water. We haul water in buckets daily. We are growing lots of corn, oats, tomatoes, kale, squash, beans, oats, tomatillos....we handbuilt our tiny hobbit house with materials we harvested off our land. We have a lot to offer to the right people,people wanting to live low-tech and more direct with nature. We have several visitors and helpers come through over the summers. We have a tipi, camper and yurt on the land for anyone to attend to and live in, and some extra wood stoves for cooking. Let me know if you want to explore Washington! We’d love to have ya!
