Hello Passionate Permies
I'm on a suburban lot in N.E. Kansas, USA. When I moved in the only thing growing was some weeds/grass. I've planted apple, peach, hazelnut and brambles. Herbs both medicinal and culinary, walking onions, comfrey, & clover, among others, have found homes here too. There are native plants for bees, butterflies and birds. A fox is keeping the rabbit population down and I have enjoyed my greens. I'm using raised beds for veggies. The garlic harvest was wonderful.
I've a list of projects that will keep me busy for years. Some of the upcoming ones are - completing Geoff Lawton's online PDC, mason bees next spring, better water management from roof and other hardscape, growing edible mushrooms, a portable rocket stove & more food trees/brambles.
I accomplish projects much slower than I can think them up but each year the place improves.
My profile has more information - didn't want to repeat myself too much.
It's great to find others who speak the permaculture language. I'm so thankful for this site and all I am learning. You are inspiring!
