Hey there, folks.

I was lucky enough to attend the Permaculture Voices Conference a few days ago. While I was there, I got the opportunity to talk to the wonderful Ms. Jocelyn (spelling? sorry.) We chatted about my current project, Treetops, and some strategies for making it (and my life in general) a little better. That conversation, among many others, and all of the mind-blowing presentations really fired me up. I have read some stuff from permies before and listened to some podcasts, but never signed up for the forums and emails. So here I am.

Treetops Permaculture is a private, 2 acre garden in Stamford, CT. We are entering the 3rd year of our 3 year installation plan. The goal is to the then turn Treetops Permaculture into a non-profit that will teach PDC's, give tours, offer work shops and donate food.

Glad to join the community, may the fun begin.

Welcome to Permies, Sam! We'll be glad to have your knowledge here to add to the discussion. If you have the time, please do start a thread in the "projects" section with some pictures and descriptions of your place - I'd love to see it!

I just posted a thread asking for advice on using our land as an outreach too. Would love to see some of the stuff you are working on and how it is going. We also went to the PV1 and got really fired up too!
