I've dreamed of creating a permaculture garden/food forest since reading Gaia's Garden in 2006 or 2007. I finally purchased my first property last year and have been slowly working on replacing as much of the lawn as my partner will let me with fruittrees, bushes, perennial vegetables, etc. It's relatively slow going as I only have time during evenings/weekends and work full time (and year round) for a local university teaching glass art and managing the glass studio during the days.
If anyone is interested in following along, I have begun to document what I'm doing on both instagram and youtube. (Although it is slow going, especially on youtube.) I would love to hear any tips or advice that more seasoned folks on here have for me!
