Hello.

My name is Michael. I come from Poland. Currently I am saving the money to rent some land to create a market garden/ mini farm. For about 3 years I am gathering knowledge related to organic farming methods. I don't remember quite when I first heard about permaculture, but the idea made a huge impression on me. I started my research with Sepp Holzer's "Permaculture", Fukuokas "One Straw Revolution" and "Gaia's Garden". Before that I was interested in the German "Biogarten" books. At this point the school of organic agriculture that caught most of my attention and closest to my idea of farming is the biointensive method. But still permaculture remains a greate concept to draw inspiration from and I am sure I will learn a lot from all of You. I hope We will have lots of fun together.

Michael! It's good to see you here from Poland. I went to Poland with my younger sister to meet with my uncle who lives there. I really like to travel around this region and Wawel Castle is one of my favorite attractions places of this region. Let me know which one is your favorite?

Well I come from the north and the north is quite different from Cracow. It is less populated, has a different architecture. So if I would have to say which attraction I think are the most worthwhile to watch I would say:

- The Marienburg Castle: is the largest castle in the world by surface area. Makes the Wawel look like a diorama. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malbork_Castle
- Ethnographic museums of Kashubia specially the one in Wdzydze Kiszewskie. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wdzydze_Kiszewskie
- The Greate Lakes. http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Great_Masurian_Lakes?uselang=pl
- The old town of ToruĊ„ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toru%C5%84

That would be mine favorite.

Howdy Michal, welcome to permies!
 
Anderson gave himself the promotion. So I gave myself this tiny ad:
Switching from electric heat to a rocket mass heater reduces your carbon footprint as much as parking 7 cars
