Dave Burton currently moderates these forums:
Permaculture is my passion, and I intend to gain hands-on experience in permaculture and make the world a better place! It's time enough to stop being angry at the bad guys and get to work making a new world!
At the moment, I am currently looking for farms, intentional communities, and ecovillages that I could be a part of, so that I can get hands-on experience and practical knowledge of permaculture.
I am always available for hire for any in real life or online projects. Just make me an offer, and we can start talking.

Summary

From Paul Wheaton, "People with homesteads are seeking people with REAL experience and skill. People seeking homesteading opportunities want to build REAL experience and skill.

This book is an attempt to bridge these two communities.  People seeking homesteading opportunities are provided a way to accomplish hundreds of things and document them for free.  Eventually, they will be able to peruse hundreds of homestead opportunities. And people with homesteads will be able to peruse hundreds of homesteaders that have proven their worth.

Active homesteaders use SKIP to build their skills for their own benefit. The verification of their skills lends weight to their words on our forums.  Some people already have land and use SKIP to build their skills for caring for their land."


From Mike Haasl, "The purpose of the book is to:
    - fully describe the SKIP system
   - show potential benefactors how robust the program is
   - give aspiring homesteaders/permaculture folks a list of skills that they can complete
   - summarize a huge amount of details into a format that is easy to read, distribute and gift

This book does not:
   - teach you how to do each skill
   - directly connect you with an heir/benefactor/land share'

Additional Buying Options - TBA (After the Kickstarter)
