Hi, new member here just introducing myself. Interested in trying anything to become more sustainable in life. I would say I am at the beginner level of permaculture except for my high level of plant knowledge. I want to start a homestead/market farm here but currently have no land or funds. I work seasonal positions related to land conservation, research in botany/population ecology(as a research tech, not a student), and spend the majority of the growing season as a laborer on a small organic farm. In the winter I work for the park systems deer management program. I dabble in growing native plants from seed, especially food plants and manage a series of vacant lots in Cleveland Ohio as a community garden and wildlife sanctuary.
The farm I work at has taught me much about the business of growing lettuce and broccoli but sadly there is no attention to the overall ecology of the land. The fields look neat and fertile while the woods get choked with invasives and valuable natives get weed whacked to the ground. So much gets wasted or ignored. We use a lot of plastic. And the weeds are just insane.
Anyway I am joining the forum to connect with like minded people, to learn and share information, that's all! Thanks.
