First of all, I’ve really enjoyed your book. Thank you for writing it. You mention the Garfield Community Center has a Bioshelter. I’m curious as to whether you or they needed permits to build. And if there was any difficulty. While I’m not in Pittsburgh proper, I am in the area.
Do you have a website or event schedule? I am hoping to take a PDC soon.
Have you had your minimum daily fiber allowance? If not, visit UrsulasYarn.etsy.com for natural fibers including: wool, hemp, linen, and more. Natural dyes are season dependent.
Garfield Farm did need permits to build the bioshelter, and they did also need to purchase the land from the city.
We are teaching a PDC in the Pittsburgh area this winter on weekends beginning in January. Check out threesisterspermaculture.com for details
