can't believe i just recently found this site. first 20 years were socal, last 10 midwest. complacency is contageous, things are much different around here. it's pretty tough getting the ball rolling on community projects. by comparison they're non existent here but been a big advocate on the smaller scale permaculture, skill trading, and off the grid projects. always trying to remember where i come from. anyways, great job on the site and hello everyone.
