It's great to see this project. Having been interested in Chile for almost a decade and permaculture and regenerative agriculture for almost as long, I am surprised I didn't find you guys earlier. We arrived in Chile almost two years ago. Our first 7 months we were in Olmué, then moved just north of Concón. Recently I started looking at other rental possibilities and somewhere saw a link to this site. It's very intriguing. I work online, so we can live anywhere that I can get internet. The flexibility is nice. A few years ago I took the permaculture course with Warren Brush, as well as some watershed management courses with Craig Sponholtz and Brad Lancaster. I was able to take the Regrarians REX10 training with Darren Doherty a few years ago too. Unfortunately, I have yet to put a lot of this into practice, so it's largely head knowledge without experience. But it has given me a vision that I hope to be able to pursue vigorously within the next couple of years. I drew up a proposal for something similar to this project a few years ago as well. It was less focused on personal housing and more focused on providing an education for poor kids in a regenerative setting. The idea is to have a school that is funded by the property so that donations, and especially tuition, aren't needed. It included a few lots plus some rental cabins. Lots would be had by membership rather than deed, in order to avoid property sales taxes and all the challenges involved there in this country. The folks down in Valdivia are doing something like that, if I understand correctly. It looks like the forums have been pretty quiet for the last year, but that you are moving along with your plans. Hopefully it'll all come together for you. I saw on the Fb page that some things are happening. What's the best way to catch up on where things stand?
