I am fairly new to the permie group. I love what I see so far. I travel around Texas a lot mostly for family and natural building. I recently finished an online Permaculture Design Course with Geoff Lawton. My first project is in a wittle bitty town called Bayside, about 35 miles north of Corpus Christi. The project is right on the bay and I am also apart of construction on the straw bale home for our client. I would love to check out any sites that have Natural building or permaculture in the works. I appreciate the information on buying land, taxes, and Veterans loans, as my father is in search of land west of San Antonio/Austin.
