Hi everybody! My partner in crime, Rob, and I just bought land in Douglas county Missouri. We are moving there in about 39 days to start our Permaculture homestead. Eventually we would love to start a small intentional community, but that may happen slowly and we need to get ourselves settled first. We would love to talk to/get to know locals who are into Permaculture.
Welcome to Missouri, Amber. I think there's some real permaculture energy gaining good momentum in our Show-Me State. Though I'm part of a group up near KC, I think we're all looking to connect in person at some point. Maybe a state-wide summit in Columbia or some place easy to get to for everyone. Keep us posted on your efforts down there with lots of photos and if you need any help with stuff, know you can reach out to the community here at large or you can go into the Kansas City area thread and reach out to we who are a bit closer.
Location: Ozarks zone 7 alluvial,black,deep clay/loam with few rocks, wonderful creek bottom!

Amber, have you moved, is it working out for you?
We have family in SW Missouri and may move down there at some point within the next year or two.
It's beautiful out here. Loads of potential everywhere. I'd like to get involved in exchange for the hands-on experience and goods to get me started on my own projects. Namely things like compost, worms, seeds, quail, even produce. Perhaps consideration for joining a community? If there was more of a long-term opportunity to be had, monetary exchange wouldn't be off the table. The majority of my work experience has been in the Veterinary field (Technician) and general labor.
I'd love to know more about your land and the projects you intend to begin working on. I've got plenty of time on my hands at the moment. Willow Springs is just a stones throw from me!
I'm a California transplant (don't hold that against me haha) 20 acres that has been in my family for generations.

Are you looking to build a community on your 20 acres? I've been somewhat interested in building a community with cabins...off-grid, semi off-grid, whatever a person would want for their own satisfaction.
I've already been pricing cabins, but I can't buy anything until I have a place to put it. I know of others that are interested too. Just joined this site a few days ago and hoping to meet some nice folks...maybe even a new partner. 😁
If anyone else that reads this is interested in chatting just hit me up.
I'd love to learn more.
