I am turning the land into a permaculture education and demonstration site. Currently building a cob cabin, food forest, etc and doing lots of soil building on the property. Also setting up tons of rainwater harvesting systems, passive and active.
I asked about Cleveland because one of my best friends lives there and he went to school for permaculture but doesn't really do anything with it now. He wishes he did but is too lazy to get back into it. Sad

Can you elaborate?

I want to show this because I think it displays to others the importance of keeping good records and how knowing where your money is spent can shape how to better serve your family in the future...

Thanks Chris! It's my parents land, actually. For a while I was leasing land from them with hopes of starting a business, but that wasn't as successful as I'd hoped it would be and I wasn't able to devote as much time into it as I would have liked as well (currently working full time at a wholesale tree farm and nursery). So business is on hold, and I'm continuing to work with my family to develop the land. Part of my PDC was developing a comprehensive farm plan for the land which we are slowly implementing as time goes on.
