Hello fellow Permaculturists,
I will first introduce myself (for I have been lurking for a couple of
months now). I call myself Mike Morel and I am a university student up
About six months ago, I was flicking through my parents TV to see if
there was documentary, or something similar of interest, on. I happened
upon a white bearded guy who was showing a new way of life. The cord he
struck in me was one of shock! What he was describing was exactly the
sort of world I want to live in. So, that next weekend I went on a
determined hunt for more information on this bizarre way of life called
"Permaculture". My first stop took me to the library, where the exact
book by this white bearded Bill Mollison was found. Unfortunately there
were 17 holds on the book - I still may not have had a good at it. So I
went to the book store and ordered it, rationalizing that this really
isn't a whim, but rather an investment into my future.
Well, since then I have been ploughing through the textbook. I now
notice things that will help make this work for me in the future, so I
will try to integrate them into my lifestyle.
Unfortunately, being a starving student, my dream will be a slow process
of building, rather than something I can just jump directly into.
I guess what I am after is stories on how other people have gotten into
Permaculture. Are you living it? Or are you just integrating small
pieces of it into your existing life? How did you develop it into your
life? What were some of your set-backs? How does you work and family
fit into all of this?
I thank you for your time and effort.
