Hey yall!

My name's Michael. I'm 20 and just got my PDC from Aprovecho in Cottage Grove, Oregon. Currently, I reside near Boise, Idaho. I'm planning on attending the Missoula permaculture conference this month! Maybe, I'll meet some of you there!

I'm really excited to start converting my backyard into a food forest. So far it's been a great learning experience in patience I'm documenting my progress on my blog. (See link, 2 posts down.)

Right now, I'm debating which path I should go on: School of hard knocks or the college route. For now, I'm exploring the school of hard knocks, but still have an open mind to college in the future.

If you live in Idaho, and you want to chat about anything permaculture, send me a PM

EDITED by moderator at request of original poster, to eliminate wrong link. (JPolk)

Whoops, looks like I linked the wrong website. I meant http://mjsielerjr.com/

If a moderator could fix that, I'd greatly appreciate it.

Are you going to raise a few fish in the canal in the warmer parts of the year.
You could also grow vine fruits behind the canal if you have a fence.

Here is my little garden in Boston.
It has a few fruits and nut trees. Alot of them are short so they will not block that much sunlight from your main pasture.
You could also think about throwing in a top bar bee hive a couple years down the road. You only need to visit it once(Aug) or twice(March/Aug). so it is not that much work.

I like the way how your garden is evolving as more ideas click.

Hey Bengi, sorry for the late reply.

I'm not sure if I'm "allowed" to raise fish in the canal, because I believe it's owned by the city.

Yes, more and more as the days go by I get ideas.
