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.

Thanks,
Linda

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
