My wife and I are new to the site and permaculture. I'm thrilled to find there are other Wisconsinites out there. We are North West of Wausau and live in a small down of less then 900 people. Our plan it to purchase a nice piece of property we have been looking at once we raise the funds. We are looking for like minded individuals that want to talk about the subject and compare notes.

Would love to get to know some permies in this state and region.
Would love anyone to stop by if you're in the area. And maybe we could do a MN/WI potluck here on the farm.

This site is a great tool for our growth and education. Our goal over the next 3 years is to buy 40 acr a small farm house that we can homestead. I already have my horses for the heavy work and to run to town, chicken for meat and eggs. Can’t wait to get land so we can get goats sheep and cows. Thank you Permies for your awesome site!

Last fall I spent 5 months living/working/learning on a developing permaculture project in Sheffield, England; we put up a toilet block, sauna, 9x30m polytunnel, and a strawbale barn/bunkhouse was in it's last steps when I finally left. Now that I'm back in the states, all I want to do is get involved with more projects, get more experience, and eventually get my own natural building company started! So far I've found Bear Paw, Acorn Enterprises, and Midwest Natural Builders, but otherwise things seem pretty sparse in the state when it comes to professional outfits.
If you're looking for a set of hands on your project, or have land that you'd like to see some development on, let me know! I'm also trying to find a ride to The Energy Fair (6/17-19) for one day or the whole weekend
