Hello,

Great idea to come up with this and sharing a very in depth book list. One thing I would add would be the Nature of Order by Christopher Alexander as I think it summarizes his other works better and helps the reader implement them into his/her community better. It would also be good to try and get opinions on how to formulate a test encompassing some key principles from each book. Carol Deppes book on how to breed your on vegetable is also a must read in my opinion. There are a few others like anything from Sir Albert Howard.
Cheers,
Ian

Timothy,

I am a 26 year old self taught permaculture student who is going to take a few workshops on natural building this year at Aprovecho. I currently live in Veneta with my partner and newborn son. We currently do not have an rv/tiny house so trying to find out if there are other available living situations on your farm. We are both into living in a more intentional community setting and working on projects that make a difference. We have both volunteered in our communities and on a couple projects and enjoy the community feeling of working through cooperation together on projects that matter.
I would like to find out more information and possibly come out in the spring and just help out and meet everyone. My partner (Alyson) is currently finishing her masters thesis at OSU so we would not move out currently and if we would have to bring our own living quarters than that would take more time too, but both are interested. I also noticed that your farm website says you are in Coquile so that would be perfect for me to attend one of their workshops and not be far away from my family. I didn't see any mentioning of couples with young children so wasnt sure if that is an option. We also have one medium sized dog and 2 cats which are all very loving. Thank you for being part of the farming of the future and building community

M.K.,

I am interested in finding out more about the location of your farm near the coast. I currently live in Corvallis,OR and have been looking for some work/internship on a farm that is more connected with permaculture than the ones that are in my area. I have read The designers manual, Gaias garden, and several other permaculture related books. I have not yet done a PDC, but most likely will in the fall, although I really just want to get more hands on learning from those with more experience than I.
I have a couple years of working on a organic farm and have a decent size garden right now. I'm a very hard worker or is very trust worthy as any of my references will probably tell you.
Would enjoy talking more you and coming out and seeing the farm sometime. You can reply to me on here or my email oriardpowder@yahoo.com

Thanks,
Ian

There is a PDC course this spring in Asheville,NC you should look into. It's done by the Panya Project....if I still lived in Raleigh I would definitely attend it.

Enjoy!

I just want to share with everyone a new documentary about permaculture done by Christian Shearer and the Panya Project. I am also sharing his website that has good opportunities to learn about high desert permaculture and various opportunities for those interested.

Name of Documentary is Seeds of Permaculture



His website is http://www.highere.org/ so everyone should check it out and maybe there are some people on here in Idaho that are unaware of this, I'm guessing I should post this in the rockies section, but thought more people would see it here.

Thanks and together we can all learn more and support each other for a better future.

This is a good source to look up lots of information with hardiness, edibility, medicinal qualities and other growing aspects of plants. Works best if latin name is typed in, is flawed like anything, but has some great things that are instantly available including good pictures that help with identification.

Interesting.... Please look into the Gerson miracle and A beautiful truth. Real deal!! Max Gersons daughter is longer ever survivor after being diagnosed with TB. She has lived over 70 years since being diagnosed with it when she was 12. Normal life expectancy is about 5 years I think and She now runs the Gerson institute and is helping others with this treatment. Of course also look into Run From the Cure, the Rick Simpson story. Many people have also taken this concept and start juicing Ganja plants noticing great benefits with no "high". I'm sure their is a forum somewhere about cancer, but thought I would share this once I saw this. Support those that perpetuate this work and also learn more about it yourself with the above documentaries already made.
Cheers

Elisheba,

I am interested in hearing more information about where you are located, what the living conditions/food trade arrangements are, and what your goals are for the two month commitment.

Thanks

Paul,

I am not the designer that you are looking for, but just wanted to touch base that I also live in Corvallis and am looking for a permaculture type farm to help out on and get integrated into more of until I can afford my own property. Once you find your designer if you need some help please let me know.

Also on side note I know that Larry Korns brother lives in Corvallis, so maybe thats a good person to contact and find out designers in the area. I recently moved here so I am not integrated into the local perm community yet.
