I have just joined this forum and live in NW England - Liverpool. I am interested in all things sustainable but live the hum drum life at the moment. Anyone else in this part of the world?

Hello, I'm in Liverpool too! Have just come across this forum whilst reading up on permaculture (am doing the design course at the moment).

some one else in liverpool thats a first. im not really doing anything sustainable - yet - i would love to be more self sufficient in my back yard so its growing things in boxes for now. I have 2 bunnies and a greyhound so any other animals are out of the question!! would love a hen and a goat though in my ideal world. and to do some cheese making too which i reckon i could learn how to do in my kitchen. Motivation and energy levels are my downfall at the moment

Have you heard of squash nutrition? They're doing some permaculture projects in merseyside, and they have a food growing group in Toxteth, they're really good! And growing your own food (even in wee boxes) is a start, so many people have lost the connection to where our most basic food comes from. I think you have to be quite creative applying permaculture principles to an urban environment like Liverpool (I'm in the south) but that it's possible! I would love to have a beehive and chickens...and a forest garden! and can see myself getting there eventually. But for the time being I have my wee garden and allotment. Have you done the permaculture design course?

I haven't done any courses but I am looking to see what is around. Working full time and having a dog and bunnies also means I have to be here for feeding and walks and so on so have to fit it around that. hens, a goat and growing things would suit me but like you have to make do with my backyard for now. I dont have an allotment as I dont think I would be able to give it all the time and attention it would need in the right seasons. and then knowing me it would become a wild and overgrown jungle, which is fine in the right place!! still we must keep positive and keep on having ideas and thoughts of where we would like to get to as after all we only have one crack at life and so must spend it doing what we love to do best. having a job is a means to and end of course even if you cant become totally self sufficient.....sorry i go on a bit dont I !

Hi, I live in West Yorkshire and have been slowly implementing a few permie things in my garden and house. I wish I had some truly local people to meet and discuss permaculture with--but who knows? Maybe there are some, I just haven't found them yet.

Why is the word "abbreviation" so long? And this ad is so short?
