I am just south of Syracuse, about a 40 minute drive from Ithaca.  We have a 60 acre farm which has been a permaculture project in the works for about 5 years.  The struggle has been finding people with an interest in permaculture to get involved.   Although it's 40 minutes from you,  there are places to stay at the farm for weekends or whatever.   Love to hear from you, if you have any interest in checking it out or if you'd just like more info.

Boneset (Eupatorium perfoliatum) works for our family.  A tea from dried leaves and stems taken when first symptoms are noticed seems to shorten the duration of symptoms.  Sometimes it knocks out the illness very quickly.  I harvest in late spring before flowers develop.

I enjoy green woodworking - spoons, bowls, rustic furniture etc...   Little initial investment needed for tools.  Plant propagation is probably the least restrictive activity to start, but it takes awhile to see results.

I also think a map would be very useful.  Permaculture Worldwide Network has one but it doesn't seem to have the same level of participation as Permies.  Exact locations wouldn't be necessary.

Lindsay, if you are still traveling and are interested in the southern hills area of Central New York,  my family and I have a 60 acre forest farm in Fabius that is in need of extra hands and creative input.  We currently do not live at the farm.  There are a few options for housing and plenty of space to do your own thing, if you're interested.  Best of luck.  Jon

Try Twisted Tree Farm in upstate NY.

Love this thread.  It seems as though there are more of us (Christian permies looking for community) out there than I once thought   I have land in upstate new York that has amazing potential (yes, I know, Upstate New York??)  It is 60 acres that was once used as a heritage farm meant to show farm life in the late nineteenth century.  It still has many of the original buildings, although they are in need of attention.  There is a cider press building, small blacksmith shop, sugar shack etc...  Anyway,  I wish more of you like-minded, Christian agrarian folks lived nearby.
