Hey all! What a massive site, it took me about 1 hour to scroll down this section!

I'm never going back to working in an office type job ever again. If I were to design something that would slowly destroy the human soul - that would be it.

It took me 27 years to realise that I really have simple needs: Movement, Good Food, Friends. What is all this talk about hardwork, sweat and tears? I started looking for work on a farm, I really just wanted some open air and movement. The search led me to permaculture. As it turns out my mam is buying a place with a bit of land so I will move in there and start designing and growing tastey treats with a goal to move toward self-sufficiency.

Thank you permaculture people all around the world! )
