I'm super excited to join the permies community and learn from you all. I've been friends with Cassie for a while and she directed me to the site and it seems like an incredible resource! If you guys have ANY questions about NuMundo or the project at all, don't hesitate to ask. I'm here to be of service!
http://www.numundo.org/ - Connecting people to transformational travel experiences
I recently had the pleasure of talking with David over the phone about NuMundo and the Windward Community (within which I live), and about NuMundo's growing into a place for sharing ideas, success (and failure) stories, and best practices for impact centers.
It was wonderful to get to talk to someone who is also so dedicated to knowledge-sharing and developing the kind of thriving communities the world and it's people need!
NuMundo is definitely something to check out in earnest if you are looking for a meaningful way to travel, or even to explore a longer term place to set down those deep tap roots.
For those who have a farm, homestead or ecovillage-ey place that is looking for volunteers, WWOOFer's, or members - I think it is definitely worth your while to get connected up and make a profile. It's super simple. You can check out Windward's listing on NuMundo to see what they look like.
Hope that Permies show some interest in what's going on at NuMundo!
