Hello all! My wife and I (ages 24 and 26) are looking for fellow orthodox Catholic farmers and permaculturists to start a community with. We find that there are many communities out there, but few truly dedicated ensuring the best for the basic unit of society, the family.

It is quite possible to be orthodox Catholic and practice permaculture (blessed are the poor in spirit) as a rejection of the religion of consumerism, materialism and hedonism, and we hope to live simply and live off the land and in a small community (like the Natives and the Original Apostles).

We aren't closed to joining a community that isn't explicitly Catholic, but our faith is VERY important to us and we would love to be around like minded and like spirited people. Please let me know if you have any ideas or thoughts for me! Thanks and God bless

Hey Dave, here's something that might be up your alley, from a blog I follow:

Hello organicdave and Jamey,

Did you find anything? I have started a Catholic Permaculture Group in Denver and Colorado springs, The Saint Isidore Society. If my signature is working, there should be a link at the bottom of the page to my website. You can read notes on our progress and explanations of our projects there. I started out calling it the Saint Isidore Permaculture society, but nobody understood what I was talking about. So it is now officially a Catholic Urban Farming group that practices Permaculture.

It is really great finding some Catholic Permaculturists! I would really love to here about your projects, etc.
