Thank you. I love it. Was surprised, being the youngest to be the one put care of the family home. It is a chore tho, trying to apply my limited understanding of permaculture which was learned from multiple videos on the net.
Mate, get some books on the subject. The library should have some.
Great idea, lol, ever since the internet I tend to forget the library is still around. Will see tomorrow what they have. I must admit tho, I don't put much stock in the local library to have anything on it tho due to its small inventory and was heavily bummed when the guy heading the local colleges agricultural dept didn't even know of permaculture.
Our libraries are systematised and connected throughout our state so they can order books in from near and far. We can also ask our library to buy books if they don't have it. Not that they necessarily will take up the suggestion but they do it often enough so its worth a try if what you want isn't available.
Search this site for book titles on permaculture if it comes down to ordering things in and you can also try reading reviews on amazon. Also look up forest gardens. I've seen book titles of these written in america which i would love to read.
Here's some of the books i've got and used but also my situation is tropical so beat that in mind.
http://www.photoblog.com/ShangriLa/2010/09/09/ Actually i need to update this post as i've bought a couple more books. ACtually most of my books aren't that suitable for you as they going to more expensive there cause they are Australian. But i am sure there are some good yankee books too if you look about. Check out bookshops perhaps. I like a variety of books. Books for different things but i do recommend the bill mollison book to you as the source textbook on the subject. Though don't expect to read it in a week.
As figured: Bill Mollison, Geoff Lawton, Murray Hallam, Tim Marshall, Leonie Norrington nor Toby Hemenway have any books in this states library system. So now I'm waiting for them to try and locate them in the national library system. While waiting for said info, any site recommendations besides youtube for permaculture/food forest info?
Also look for the book by patrick whitefield. I read the worst review. The reader hadn't understood the concept of forest gardening so he blamed the writer. You should be able to get that book easily as its written by an american. Also look for robert hart i think his name is. An english guy. Not much practical use i understand but should explain the important concepts of a forest garden and he is the "inventor" of it in the northern hemisphere. Why his version is useful is because its for a temperate climate.
Keep an eye out for blogs. FOr me they keep popping up as i go along though not much showed up when i first started searching.
Some of the regulars on thsi site keep blogs. Have a look at their links.
