Nearly every area has some woodworkers around. Try advertising in your local Craigslist or looking into local resources such as community centers that sometimes offer classes. Try asking and posting at local craft and tool stores. Haunt any local craft fairs to find local crafters. They could probably help you locate other woodworkers in your area with similar interests. Woodworkers are a pretty generous lot and I am willing to bet there is a local who would love to have you over for a cup of coffee and some shop time. In the meantime, if you have specific tool needs post it. Someone here may have an extra laying around.
