Greetings Travis and welcome to the site. You might also wish to get involved with the permaculture-slo site. see the first article in the new issue of HopeDance (not out yet) about Kipp Nash's success with creating edible lawns in his Boulder, CO neighborhood to a point where he created a CSA.
Do you know of folks who will film some of your projects so we can post them here. Have you seen the Grow Food Party Crew video on this site? Perhaps we in SLO County can evolve into what that group did in Ojai?
