Why are you interested in joining this group?

teach, show, tell, share, I teach Master Gardeners and would welcome the homestead group-esp. if I were just starting. I do have to pay for this farm somehow and selling my produce especially through CSA-Community Supported Agriculture, It would please me to deliver widely to the Seattle region. Edible Landscapes and Permaculture designs have provided this farm and now a bigger order is to create the Non-profit education center where collaborating with all the resourceful persons involved with growing a local food economy is of an urgency I cannot begin to describe-as in I' really am looking forward and expect an economic collapse as derivitives reveal their ugly head. And with global Warming, yes, we are. 2700 to 24. And yes you can believe in technology all you want... It's you, with the frog in the beaker mentality that delves no deeper and waits for extinction. 200,000 species lost every day? As an urban homesteader I will promote growing as much food as one can and choosing local.

What gil s. is saying about this Meetup Group

I've really enjoyed and learned from the participants from the couple events/meetings I attended. A few have come out to the farm to sample what grows here and I always welcome this as I find my time on the farm more demanding every moment, and I can work and teach at the same time!
