Hello from Central Kentucky!

I've been growing and making things with various rates of success and failure for a number of years. A stint in Berea College provided exposure to varied sorts of growers, the more approachable and tolerable of which would whisper the word "permaculture" with an almost revered tone of unattainable Something.

Some of these folks became friends. Some...annoyances. But isn't that the way of folk? :p

Eventually dabbling in human-powered thingamajiggs led me to Earthineer.com, which led to a renewed interest in things that grow. But, it wasn't until I gained a few children and reestablished a tradition dad and I had of working a garden together, that I retried my hand at growing things. Successive failures and well, successes, led to research which recalled those permaculture whispers and led to hugelcultures and food forests and bright-eyed wonderment. Unfortunately, that wonderment seems to be incessantly stuck in pseudo-suburbia; but fortunately, perseverance and hardheadedness constantly seek ways to turn suburban sameness into miniature gardening rebellions.

It's likely I won't pipe in much, but I hope to glean a good deal from the wisdom of what seems like a very awesome community!

The more I research, the more I'm finding just that! It is very exciting indeed.

I hadn't heard of the book, but I have a sample on my kindle now. Thanks for the recommendation!

Your welcome, let me know what you think of it.
 
I love a good mentalist. And so does this tiny ad:
