Hi Huck! My son and I were just down your way last weekend-- we live in the valley and took a quick 48hr jaunt out to the coast and stayed a night in Bandon, then drove back up the coast to Newport before heading back to the valley.

OSU's permaculture program is legit. Andrew Millison is a really great person, and if Marisha Auerbach is still involved, even better. We're so lucky to have a vibrant permaculture community in Oregon!!

Nettles should be prime in your forests right around now! They've been good here in the valley for the past week or two.

Hey Faren, nice to meet you and thanks for the heads up on the nettles! I've heard a lot of great things about Andrew and Marisha so I'm really looking forward to this class. You'll probably be seeing a lot of me here. Maybe we'll get a chance to chat somewhere along the way.

Cheers!

Welcome to permies from a fellow Oregonian. The course sounds great. Do you have space to experiment with in Waldport?

Hey Sonja, it's nice to meet you! Yeah, I think there'll be plenty of space. I live in a community with like minded folks and a little land to play with along with a 4500 sq ft greenhouse. I've also been approached to serve as a pc consultant for a landscaping company in my area that I think will really catch on with the locals. I'm pretty excited about the opportunity here. Are you in the area?

Hi from Harlan! We're not down there full time yet, but working on it. I agree with others, the resources from OSU are great. Andrew Millison has some great videos on youtube, just in case you haven't found them yet.

And, yes, the nettles are coming in strong. Bleeding hearts were blooming for us last weekend, too.

Welcome, never heard of Waldport before last week when I got an inquiry about buying a generator from me. Hello from southern Oregon.
