Hello! Let me know if there's anything you're particularly interested in hearing about, otherwise I guess I'll just join in with other threads

Welcome to permies Juliet!

My copy has *just* arrived and I'll be working on a review as fast as I can. One thing I can say now though is that I wish I'd had this a few years ago when I was stuck indoors so much. I bought a copy of The Bountiful Container then and it just doesn't compare. I'll get reading now, and get that review done asap.

Welcome!

Really interested in seeing how 5 gallon buckets might be used for apartment balcony situations. Did some consulting with an inner city collective that were using them.

Welcome! I couldn't have joined at a better time! I will b e paying attention to anything you say, as I have always loved growing my own veggies and am only able to do potted/pallet gardens do to being military. I cant wait to get my own land to be able to dig into the ground for what I want! I have had decent results but not as good as I want in pots, and I try to keep my "garden" as organic as possible; the only fertilizer that I use right now is Miracle Grow!

Hi Juliet,

I was in your shoes a fortnight ago with my new book on eco-friendly sewage options. Your contribution sounds a tad more beautiful! I confess I've not read your book, so if your story is there in full, I'm going to run the risk of asking you to repeat yourself… How did you get into permaculture first? I find people's stories fascinating.

I don't know if it's "done" for the author to comment on a review thread so I will say here that I'm very glad you liked it, Burra, and thank you for such a thorough (and complimentary ) review!

I've used similar but slightly smaller buckets to make self-watering containers -- I used florists' buckets as a place near me sells them at 10 for £1 which seemed moderately irresistible. I think anything like that can be a great container and even better if you can find a way to stack them to create a reservoir for watering.

So I ran the winner picker app in the forum software and we have 2 winners.

Jp Learn
and
Steve Bentler

Congratulations Jp and Steve!

I sent you an email to ask for the email address of the person that first referred you to Permies.com. That person (if qualified) will also get a copy of the book and a permies care package.
