I know that this was posted quite a while back but I found this conversation and this site when searching google for exactly what you're talking about creating. I would love, love, love to help make this a reality. I am a current college student but at the end of high school I did a month long internship with a local farmer who taught me about permaculture and then I took a gap year and wwoofed in New Zealand for 3 months where I learned even more, I've taken a semester course on it during college and try to implement it into my life as much as possible. I constantly struggle with the decision to leave college or not because all I really want to do is buy land and start a homesteading permaculture community and I have many friends who want just the same. If you can help make this a reality for me and together we help make this a reality for others and help spread the ways of living of permaculture I would feel forever accomplished. Let me know if you're still working towards this goal!
