Hello fellow Permies!
I joined a while ago and after much, much reading, I feel I should at least say Hi! I've read so many different posts and forum threads that, although I've not met or talked to anybody here, yet, many of you feel like old friends. I want to thank ALL of you for that. It's feels good to be part of a community, hopefully I can try to help out here or pay forward to others the valuable information that has helped me get started!
My interest in Permaculture started with wanting a more simple life. Divorce and the subsequent material downsizing refocused my desire to "live off the land" and all my childhood memories of watching Grizzly Adams and Little House on the Prairie came back into play. I hadn't heard of Permaculture or Sustainability (as a movement) until I found this site, and I quickly became hooked on the Permaculture buzz. That was almost two years ago - Fast Forward - I found and purchased 18 acres in southeast Virginia, and with a lot of help from these forums, have managed to start growing my little sustainable empire. More details in another post later, outlining and detailing all the different projects. Until then - THANKS AGAIN!
