This is directed to Grant as of course I'm drooling at the chance to attend the workshop...but really anyone can chime in. Where do I start....I plant...always have from a flower pot to currently a few garden beds and chickens in my backyard. Rent and have a HOA so have to tread lightly. I read..yeah me ...Currently reading a few books by Toby Hemenway..might have an opportunity to hear him speak..is that good?? I don't know. Also Sepp Holzer's Permaculture ..guide and one by Joe Saltin. So, I listen to Paul rant...oh I mean talk lol no...he does rant...on the pod casts and youtube a ton of stuff, read until my eyes cross and then play in the dirt. So again, my very vague question from a totally newbie...greenie..what resources would you recommend...only so many hours in a day...i lost several just reading about the pro's and con's of nitrogen fixing trees. All knowledge is good, I just would like to have a better idea of the basics. I'm planning on taking the next step..so land...design...dang...anyway.. Any advise is appreciated.

Reading is OK, but playing - and observing - in the soil is awesome!

Howdy Judy, welcome to permies!

Well you "start" right here at permies.

Take a look around, there is a ton of information here. Be sure to ask questions in different forums, and ya, if you get to see Toby , well I would do that in a heartbeat!
I am going down to the lab. Do NOT let anyone in. Not even this tiny ad:
