Hey everyone! I am from panama city florida, and we got absolutely hammered by the recent hurricane, Hurricane Michael. My dear teacher and friend, Bill, who introduced me to permaculture 5 years ago, lives full time on his land is wanting to get more heavily into growing lots of food and reforesting. He runs the non profit of Wildcat Creek Educational Center, which can be found on facebook.

We are asking for any and all permies to help us spread this so that we can get seeds, cuttings, roots, etc. We are looking to become a local regenerative food hub and consciousness hub. Please help us quickly re establish. Thanks ❤

Hi Tristan!  Please let me know how I can help.  What can I send y'all from Middle Georgia?  I know you are looking for LOCAL items.  Are we too far away from your zone to send any of our native seeds, cuttings, etc. your way?

Lots of things for your zone will work fine for us. Seeds of legumes, seed crops, herbs or vegetables, fruit or root crops, etc. Definitley need fast-growing pioneer species to cast shade and make certain sector barriers-specifically cold winter wind, firebreak, highway (which is now visible). Looking for stuff to plant for the chicken flock(10 now, growing later), pollinators and wildlife species too. Small but open list of plants desired - Mulberry, Raspberry, Loquat, Legumes of all kinds, , PawPaw, Mayhaw, Nut seeds, berry bushes, tubers, etc. thank you!!

Thanks Tristan!  I'll help pass the word. I'm guessing we can get the contact information for Wildcat Creek Ed. Center from their homepage.
