I really wish I could do a poll but I shall have to content myself with a verbal one. I'm really interested in seeing the demographic of permaculture folks.

So what is your life situation like:

Age?
Single?
Married?
Working full time out of the home?
Living off the land?
Retired?
Kids?

The land provides us with enough to keep the bills low and our bellies full of great food for most of the year. 100% of our meat and eggs along with 50% of our fresh veg and fruit. Those amount are increasing every year as the new plantings of trees begin to bear more fruit.
Within five years I'd like to be fully food secure. Gotta find space for a cow...
