Re: Star Berry Farm

I am interested in participating in a work day on a Sat/Sun.  I am not a permaculture graduate, but I read one of Mollison's books  9 years ago and I don't mind labor.  I am also working on a pocket neighborhood that could be characterized as co-housing light.  I am talking to several landscape architects and you may have some to recommend.  The site will have native/drought tolerant plants, limited turf on a common lawn, and rainwater harvesting.

So let me know if anything pops up on these two subjects.

Re: Star Berry Farm

Katie,

 Thank you for responding. We will not be starting any projects until March. We ( my husband and I) are mainly interested in meeting other like minded people and having some work parties and good times on our new farm. I look forward to chatting in the future.

Here is a great link to rain harvesting: great prices on water storage! Located in Georgia

Re: Star Berry Farm

That sounds great!

I'm trying to raise some funding to visit Totnes, England in March, to attend a course at Schumacher College.
I need to raise $1,000.
Do you think we could set up a talk/discussion when I get back that people would pay to attend?
The course is in Spiral Dynamics and extremely relevant to anyone interested in sustainability and social transformation.
Looking forward to seeing your farm!
Thanks for the link.
Cheers,
Katie
