Hi Andrea, First wish you the best of luck!!! We're in West Central FL and may have already been in touch with you? Wonder where you are? We're near Plant City and looking for Permie farming partners. Have always believe that community is one of the most important lifestyle that's missing in our messed up world! We've tried and failed at our IC attempts and presently just trying to hang on to our permie farm. You may of see our web site www.ecofarmfl.org Peace! Jon

Hey sorry to hear about the water. First principal of Permaculture "Observation" which I also seem to keep forgetting about, which is pretty important. When I think (get bit!!) about Mosquitoes song birds come to mind and how important those little insect are!
Somehow I never looked at the post from the person in Clearwater 3 months ago. I've always thought Intentional Communities were the best arrangement for shared lives and we're looking for partners, which both parties make the agreement. This a Craig's list AD I'm running, it mentions your thought about working into a partnership, ownership arrangement.  

Small sustainable focused, permaculture-based farm looking for others really wanting to grow vegetables, perennials and raise animals here in central Florida. We're offering housing, food, shared kitchen (possible transportation) plus a small stipend. We're family orientated, non-religious, social, community, environmentally active folks. Open to others wanting to buy into our farm as partners; cash, sweat equity, or ? Key words: homesteading, homegrown, climate change, Weston Price, ecovillage, community, WMNF, peace. Sustainable Farms are the solution for a healthy life and planet.

We just did another WMNF Sustainable Living Radio program with Pete Kanris about fruiting trees and he mentioned
his upcoming on line course with Jim Kolvaleski, and it sounds great! Anyhow this is part 2 of his video of our syrup making.

We're near Tampa FL and have been looking for help and this is a AD we've posted in Craig's list in the past:

Hey Nick thanks for the post! Save ours from the "No reply's" club!
Did get a couple of homeless folks to join us a couple of months ago, through a Craig's List ad. Kind of strange working with the couple that never heard of permaculture, sustainability, etc. but they turned out to be some of our best help in recent years. A couple of months before the homeless couple started a local volunteer started helping, about the time I posted this, and he also turned out to be great help. He also never looked at our mission of permaculture and sustainable living, etc. Still this small group really freed up a lot of my time to work on several projects that have been on the back burner for years. Also ended up getting our cane field back into production. A couple of weeks ago one of them ended up in jail for violation of probation and Jose the volunteer left about the same time. So scratching my head again about finding others. We did one squeezing Sunday but looks like we have 8 more to do!  Figured this might bump this to the to top.  
I've been thinking a lot about the recent article in the National Geographic and feel it's just more of the same human assault on nature. No trees no ecosystem, just a giant food factory. True a small greenhouse on a small farm or connected to a holistic house could be considered permaculture.
