Hello from Houston! I'm new to permaculture and a novice to gardening in general, so I apologize in advance because I may have a tendency to ask many basic questions. I've just finished reading Gaia's Garden and have signed up for a local Intro to Permaculture course to see if the PDC is something I might be interested in pursuing. We're in the middle of a long drought here in Houston, and so until conditions are more favorable I'm keeping my projects simple; an herb spiral to begin with. If there any other Houstonians or even other Texans on this forum, I'd love to hear from you. I look forward to learning from everyone here, and even more so looking forward to being able to contribute some of my own knowledge as time goes on!
Thanks for the link! How funny, just yesterday I was in the very same place as Merriweather - in the Houston Arboretum with my family! I think I might have caught a glimpse of him too; I saw someone wearing his outdoorsy garb leading a class, and on his website it says he was teaching an Edible Wild Foods class. The Arboretum was very dry as well, quite brown and whatever was green was hanging limply off the branches. Might be about time for Texas to do some state-wide rain dancing!
