Howdy everyone! My name is Vermin and I've just started taking steps to starting my dream life of learning and living permaculture. Like, just, /just/, starting. I've almost finished reading "The Hand Sculpted House", I've drawn some floor plans on graphing paper, and I transferred one of those designs onto a piece of cardboard to begin building a 1"=1ft scale model. I've even posted a craigslist ad in my area hoping someone would have a half acre of land to lease to me for my first cottage!
I've dreamed of living out of a cob house for years, and I've dreamed of living out of an earthen building for as long as I've thought about houses. I plan on getting a guide on permaculture gardening as soon as I'm finished with the cob book, and looking into supplementary resources as well. Any recommendations are most welcome!
Anywho, I'm looking forward to hearing from y'all, and I can't wait to read the wisdom of you experienced folks on here!

I'm not the official welcoming committee, Vermin, but welcome to this awesome world. I am truthful when I write that I learn something new every, EVERY time I visit the forums. Take lots of time to read through the threads. There's good healthy debate and often differing points of view on many topics here. For me, that means lots to take in and explore ... and also means that there's more than one way to skin a cat.

Dive in, participate and learn.

Dan

Welcome, Vermin! This place will help with those baby steps. Lots and lots and lots and lots and... Well, you get the idea.
