Hello all! I My name is Angie and I am new here. I currently live in an apt in a major MN city. My situation doesn't really lend well to permaculture right now, but I can certainly get a jump on the things I need to know until my circumstances change! For now I am focused on learning techniques and learning how to utilize and improve my surroundings within my abilities. This is such a great site and I truly appreciate all the time and input of everyone on here! Thanks for sharing.

Welcome, Angela, You'll find lots of other urban dwellers here practicing permaculture! From apartments to hundreds of acres a permaculture lifestyle is possible.

You could try out worm composting that way instead of sending it to the landfill you will be running your own recycling back to nature system. Then you could divide the worm for the birds to eat a few. Maybe even use the finish compost to grow a few indoor plants to clean the air. If you have a balcony you can use the same compost to grow quite a few 4-6ft dwarft fruit tree that can be left outside all winter long, (the peach/prunus family, berries, vines/grape) with some fava beans for N and you could worm compost the leaves to recycle nutrients. Right now I have some kale growing inside, I plan on planting them in ground this spring.
