Hello Adam and others! I just wanted touch base with y'all to say that my partner, two kids and I have just moved to NW Michigan and will be starting our permaculture ventures and soon as we finish our house and can see the ground again! We live in in Copemish on ten acres of mostly wooded land. I wonder if there is potential for any sort of gathering or something? I know there is a permaculture potluck group that I haven't had a chance to attend yet, but other than that we don't know anyone in the area and would love to remedy that. Permaculture is new to me and my gardening experience is limited to a year of working on a csa so I have a lot to learn.
Anyway, good luck and I hope you find something!
