Hi everybody, Kieran here. Longtime lurker, just registered, first post!

Currently residing south of Salt Lake City in a neighborhood which is currently being strip-malled (strip-mauled?). Permaculture student, obsessed with traditional crafting and lifestyles.

Here to learn and hopefully make friends.

Current projects: harvesting what I could grow on my half of a shady quarter acre (shouldn't take long), putting garden to bed, looking for hands-on learning experiences, searching for an ethically-sound (environmentally friendly) job. I'd love to get some real, in-depth, hands-on education in farming and taking care of livestock, traditional crafting, and natural building. Most of all I want to be productive while leaving the planet better off than it was when I was born, and taking care of my loved ones and my community.

Future plans: buy land, homestead, market garden. Maybe even with a group of like-minded individuals.

Hi Kieran nice to have you here finally posting! I love when members jump the line and decide it's time to become posters and not only readers. I was a reader for some time but then just coildn't wait to get into the fun stuff.
Well I guess you know how things work here, but anyway I feel ok sharing with you the universal welcome post
And inviting you to share your knowledge in the forums you seem to have a lot to write about.

Glad you jumped the line!

Howdy Kieran, welcome to permies!

I added your intro to the Rockies forum to see if some of our other Utahans might say hello here.
