Mason is cheaper and less restrictive but less progressive. Also much cheaper. I don't know your budget but Pierce and Thurston also tend to be expensive. All are good areas though. Let me know what you decide! I'm working on getting public food forests going in Shelton and on the peninsula

There is one downside - the weather. Unlike James, my peach trees died the first year. I love eggplants but they will have to wait for the greenhouse.
