I totally love this forum! Last fall I "discovered" Permaculture after researching some books I found for sale through craigslist. Someone had a huge selection of permaculture and related books and information dvd's for sale as they were moving out of the country. I used their list of authors and books (since all the books had sold) and I followed bunny trails where I became obsessed with permies.com. I watched the videos and read the blogs and went to events. Wow! I tell everyone to start here and follow the trails! What a super great resource! I have a huge hugelculture bed started, planted a new orchard, plan to incorporate Fukuoka variety throughout the orchard. Bought a pig to clear my garden of voles and blackberries, then sold it. I can't wait to make Seth's bone goop to paint the trees! I just can't get enough of Sepp. I just wish I could find someone to help with setting it all up and doing some of the heavy work. Anyone want to play "Let's make a $50 dollar shelter or a Sepp style shelter under ground?"
Would love to hear other peoples trails and favorite authors. I prefer the practical info about doing it.. companionable plants for guilds, this is how to make a pond...etc.

I'm a huge fan of Brad Lancaster and boost his books whenever I get the chance. We're in the process of implementing large-scale rain harvesting on our land.
