Thanks for the IC recommendation, it's something I haven't thought about. I was wondering if there are groups out there that meet about things like homesteading, gardening, something like that. Maybe a monthly group for organic gardeners...any ideas?
Well, there's the Permaculture Connvergence in September, in Hopland, and the Solar Living Institute itself. The Occidental arts and ecology center puts on things, and there's Canticle Farms in the Bay area. Intentional communities are always rising and falling though.
