This is a rather new interest for me, but one that has always been in the back of my mind.
I have been called "odd" by friends in the past for my refusal to believe that there is no other way to exist other than the way we do now. It isn't working! The ramifications of our greed and senseless over-indulgence can be seen all around us.
By learning all about permaculture by the seasoned gems here at PRI, I hope to gently influence my widely cynical and apathetic peer group by teaching through doing.
I believe there is joy to be found and a greater sense of achievement and fulfilment within ourselves and local communities when we learn to put back in what we take out. Food and water is just the beginning.
Looking forward to reading all of the juicy morsels from informed like-minded people!
If you have any particular tips for me on how and where to get started, I am open to all suggestions!
