Hello, thank you all.
My name is Jesse and I would like to introduce myself and participate in site. Although I am 28, I don't know how to use forums and would love and tips or guidance, should I make mistakes.
I have read other introductions and a pattern of informal 1st person self description seems to be the way to do it.
I am an Australian bloke, living in Mexico with my partner with who I share desires for a better life. We met at a pdc 4 years ago, southern cross Permaculture Institute. Obviously we got a lot from our course, however understood it was a drop in the ocean.
The concept of Permaculture has been in my life from day one. My mother having taken her pdc in the eighties before my birth.
With the ups and downs of life I have seen and lived different degrees and styles of Permaculture. Living on land share, rural, urban and metro sites and projects, projects of various countries, courses and business for example.
I hope is to be able to contribute to the site in any way I can, having working knowledge varies areas. I also hope to learn from the site as best I can.
Thanks again

Hi jesse! i love it. I love meeting people who grew up amongst permaculture. It's kinda rare in my experience. So glad to have you around.

Hello Jesse,

Welcome to Permies! I hope the learning experience on the site matches your learning experience in real life and are able to reflect upon each other.

Mexico, I recently moved from New Mexico. It is suppose to be a wet El Nino winter for you and my friends in my home state. I hope you are able to catch some of that water, assuming that you live in the drier parts of Mexico.

Hey Brett, yeah a lot to learn in a new climate/environment, all put of it. Apparently I live in humid sub tropics. Although given everything left to learn, the land seems to be the easier part. Markets, suppliers, nurseries e.t.c all seem a bit tricky. Can I ask about your climate?

Hello Jessie, I recently moved from Albuquerque, NM to Buffalo, NY. Albuquerque was a high desert climate with about 12 inches of rain a year, typically received in the two monsoon months of July and August. The rest of the year was dry.

Buffalo, NY is the almost exact opposite with steady precipitation every month, either snow or rain.

Good luck with the logistics, as you said, that is the tough part.
