Hello friends,

i am 33 years old and permaculture found me and gave me what i always missed.
After working many different jobs, everyone feeling so meaningless to dedicate my life to i learned about climate change and then permaculture. And firstly i got depressed about the state of the world.
But then i also found something which fascinates me deeply and i love to learn everyday. (I have a BSc which didn't really interest me)

2020 i worked on a small organic family farm and knew very fast that this is the right way.
I decided to start studying horticulture to later find a job with which i hopefully (Prices are exploding) can pay a small plot of land i can turn into a productive ecosystem.
For now i moved last September to a new apartment with a small backyard garden with lots of ideas and projects.
I would like to get some input from you guys about different design aspects and maybe document the progress for other people with small backyard gardens.

Welcome to Permies, Helio!

Take your time to browse through the different forums here, you will find a wealth of information and many like-minded people.
You can search for region, or situation (urban, suburban), vegetables and so on...

If you want you can share a photo of your current garden.

Hello,

I left Germany a few years ago because finding an affordable place that isn't tightly regulated did not appear to be likely. (And working full time while doing permaculture isn't particular easy either..)
Now I have space, lots of work and even money, but time ... is lacking.
If you are not tightly bound to Germany, we need permaculture people here! (I promise to write about this place soon.)

Hi Sebastian,

i am really thinking about leaving the germany in the future. My hopes for the future here are ... bland...
There are many reasons behind it, most of all climate change and with that a political radicalization (even more...)
I also want to live in a real diverse community and not this anonymous self-centered citys or towns.

Where did you move to?
I'm interested to read more of that place.

Liebe Grüße
Florian
