I'm also interested in permaculture gardening in FL., specifically urban and suburban and public access land food forestry.

I'm currently in Boca Raton and dreaming up a business/project. Would love to collaborate with those with relevant skills, know-how, knowledge, interest, passion, desire, tools, resources, plans, energy.

We're located near Tampa (Plant city) and have been here for 35 years, so we've done a lot of observation over the years. I'm 71 and my wife is not far behind, so really looking for others to help and hopefully take over what we have started. I real believe in the principals of permaculture and have been trying to get others interested in the topic by volunteering for our community radio station doing a sustainable living program for the last 15 years. Feel we are doing the best at being a permaculture farm in our region but have room for improvement. Haven't kept up with our web site but it still is somewhat correct (read the last page). Our e-mail is email@example.com and my cell is 813-708-3179 www.ecofarmfl.org
I'm near Tampa as well (almost Wesley Chapel), but would be very interested in heading out and helping at some point in exchange for learning something new. I live in an urban cookie-cutter home riddled with HOA restrictions and I am just stir-crazy trying to learn more. I'll shoot you over an email as well, but wanted to reply here in case that was a better way to reach you.
As for the OP, I also know a few people in St. Pete that run a more permaculture type property and I know they are always open to visitors. I'm not sure if they need help or have a place to stay, but it would be another great place to learn. Currently that is the ONLY place I've learned apart from YouTube and a short visit out to Rob Greenfield's place in Orlando before he closed up shop there.
Keeping the world green, one party at a time!

Sure you can send us an email. Yes Wesley Chapel is a pretty dismal place but so is about anywhere.
