Another thing I should add is that I am in the market for collaborators. People who would be willing to help me plan and launch the kickstarter. It does take a lot of work to make a successful kickstarter and working 7 days a week I would greatly appreciate an extra hand or 2.

Hi there, I am new to the forums. This coming January I plan on doing a kickstarter in order to start a Permaculture resource and education center in upstate SC. I intend to hit the full spectrum of plants, annual, Perennial, medicinal, and so forth. The idea though is not to capitalize on actual produce but instead create a mini nursery for all kinds of zone 7 oriented plants that permaculture loves to use. Some of them can be hard to find. I am looking for it to spread permaculture to my local area and eventually the tristate area. Mostly my customers back yard. I will not be doing any design just make all the best materials available. I think I found a nice piece of land almost 30 acres and the seller is willing to owner finance. I will need some help though. I need an expert to help me with design and implementation. And several other things that I know will come up.

Hi my name is Ben I'm new but I have been studying permaculture and the like for over a year now. I am actually planning on doing a kickstarter to set up my own farm and education center. Earlier in the post you were looking for a better way to control weeds without having to use the black plastic. The best way I found (via research) was to use leaf mulch. Or standard wood mulch if you can find it without any pine. The technique is mostly pioneered by the guy who started "back to Eden gardening". Just put it over everything after harvesting and when spring comes just make a hole and drop the seed in, repeat every year. As far as I know you couldn't ask for a better soil health and I'm not sure why all permaculture people aren't doing it. I know Eric Tosenheimer does.
