This all said, I still feel that in the future prices of food in general is going to keep going up as we erode our lands even further and further. The reason why I wanted to start perm now is because I forecast that monos will become less and less effective while perms will stay resilient even during drastic climate change in the region. Monos will suffer from drought while perms will stay consistently intact. Water will be the #1 issue within 20 years, and perms will stay unaffected for the most part. Please let me know if this is true. Part of being a good investor is forecasting the future, and forecasting it before mainstream forecasters. So I'm hoping I can be a good investor and make good investments for our future and be part of the change that will be inevitably needed. I'm obviously going to get a bias response here when I ask if I should get into permaculture now but I wanted some more specifics from you guys to help me in the details. Let me know how I can get started on a personal scale. My preference would be to have maybe 1/2 the land already permacultured while the other 1/2 bare so I can learn from what's already there and 1/2 of it I can apply myself from scratch. Finding that land may take sometime, but I'm flexible enough to move to another state if I have to, or even another country if the weather and people are nice. I was thinking Costa Rica by the way. And any further info you know of on the business side of permaculture is greatly appreciated.
Anyways, let me know your thoughts on all points above. I left out a lot of details but I can clarify and thanks if you've made it this far lol.
