Erica and I live in tonasket wa not far from skeeter. However we dont know many folks and would like to get a read on who's who her in our area. We went to the seed swap and met a few folks and would like to meet more.
We have a few skills we can trade and eggs (lots of eggs, free range chickens are laying about a dozen a day so we have lots) organicfeed, no hormones, no layer mix, none of that stuff. the chickens get scratch, scraps, alfalfa, and whatever they can catch. let us know, give a shout.
Need more info?

This is Barbara, you met me at the Seed Swap at the CCC in Tonasket. We are still going to have the Permaculture Study Group meeting on Friday Feb.17th at 6pm (pot luck too) at Skeeter and Peter's house in Tonasket, there has been a fair amount of interest in this meeting from folks I have talked with. So, if you can come, you will meet more Okanogan Permie types (a lot of them are also Okanogan Slow Fooders and some of them are in Green Okanogan too, our crusading recycling group). If you or anyone else reading this wants to contact me about the meeting, please email me at : firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks and hope to see you there!
I just noticed mention of your message down below. Well this is great! Recently I posted a message in the permies » forums » building » green building forum, "Okanogan Highlands", in which I mention you folks because not long ago my friend Diane Emerson sent me the link to your video about the rocket mass heater that you demonstrated in your living room. Love that video! I believe Diane is a contributor to the cause.
Hey, Tonasket isn't in the Highlands. It's in the valley. )
I posted another post about biodiesel on the energy forum that you might want to take a look at.
I recently bought land near Chesaw. Right now I am continuing to live in Portland, Oregon, but I am making preparations to move to near my property A.S.A.P. I've been working on getting a diesel truck, checking Craigslist and ebay, and getting an apartment, been filling out applications for that. I plan on moving within the next couple of months (I hope!).
Just yesterday, I saw Paul's 2 hour 39 minutes video of the talk he gave down in San Diego earlier this year. Wow! What a guy!! The length of it screwed up my plan for the day, but not a problem. That unexpected treasure was certainly well worth it!
Well let's stay in touch. I am determined to become your Okanogan County neighbor!
I'm thrilled to find you all. We're relocating to Okanagan highlands within months. Grew up in Stevensville MT but been a flatlander for too long. Looking to glean your wisdom and community. We wanted to raise babydoll Southdown sheep (I spin) but we have lupine everywhere.. Adjust, adapt....

BTW...are you the Ernie and Erica of the famous Ernie and Erica? If you're in Tonasket, I think I've died and gone to heaven.
Hello, I've been trying to find a way back to the Tonasket/Oroville area and am looking to find a group that is already living on the land and might want more help or others who are wanting to get on land, not sure how else to find like minded people hope it is OK to ask this way. If you can help please let me know I'm very experienced working with the land. Thank You.
