So here I am, maybe not in my dream place like in the tropics or south of Europe, but still theoretically a quite good place for permaculture. Would like to connect with other english speaking permies, I am in Hessen area. Happy to hear from you

Hi!  I'm in Hamburg.  I only have a Kleingarten, but as my German improves I'm hoping to find communities.  How did you end up in Hessen, and what do you like about it?  

Feel free to Purple Mooseage me, but I don't always see them quickly.

English speaking but not a native-speaker, does that qualify? ;-)
I am gardening in Southern Bavaria in my own little garden (plots are tiny here).
My winters are rather harsh (or used to be, at least), autumn tends to be very wet and foggy.

I do have contact with some people who garden in a similar way, but they probably wouldn't call themselves "permies". Just gardening in a sustainable way.

I do notice though that even elderly/more conservative people are getting more conscious about what and how to plant in a garden. The referendum on the extinction of many insects here in Bavaria (this year) helped to raise awareness.
