    I have been exploring city repair over the last couple of days and I really like the movement. I plan to get started in my city (Caslegar BC) soon. Keep up the good work.

    Have started gardening 1 year ago. Went with sq ft gardening techniques because I was attracted to the efficiencies. As I have been learning, the middle of my second growinig season here in Michigan, I came across the concept of permaculture. That was an eye opener. I am intending to use this model to the best of my ability for next, my third season, and for all of the foreseeable seasons.

    This interest lead me to your site, just now, as it was mentioned by Toby Hemenway in a YouTube Video entitled Redesigning Civilization — with Permaculture posted in Jan of 2013 that I am watching now.

    I live in Flint Mi. If ever a city needed rebuilding, it is Flint. I would be interested in knowing the mechanics of opening a chapter in Flint.. if you have any information about the inner workings of your organization Be warned this may be whimsical. Usually when I latch on to something like this I become disillusioned with the inevitable politics that seem to rise in any good organization

    With that disclaimer fully in place, if you want send me something I would appreciate it, If no, I would understand.
