My husband and I would really love to attend this conference together, as we own property in NE WA that is presently a blank slate waiting for something to happen to it! I have been reading permaculture books for the past couple of years, and watching permaculture videos like a sponge. I realize that the infrastructure--the earthmoving--should really be the first thing to happen to our "canvas" so that all the other permaculture practices instituted will flow... The location for this event is similar to our locale, so I know it will be packed with very useful information pertinent to our place. Please pick me for a free ticket to this event!! Zach, are you going to be staying in the Montana area?
