I am looking for help with organic gardening, permaculture design, plans for a magical granny cabin, building wheelchair accessible forest trails, construction, wood gathering & chopping, planning an NVC ("Nonviolent Communication") Grandfamily Camp this summer, see video:­
    and creating an Ecovillage.
