Hello. I am Rachelle, 24 and currently unemployed. My family wanted me to get a job again but I really don't want to, not because I'm stubborn, but because I don't want to go back in that stressful environment. Going back to the rat race is a big 'NO' for me. They don't understand my situation and keeps making me do what they want is 'right' for me. I was looking for a way to restart my life and luckily I stumbled upon this website. Right now, I have read a lot of forums about permaculture, homesteading, food forests, natural buildings, vertical gardening etc. but getting started is the real struggle. I live in a floodplain area. The flood has went down as of now, but it is the rainy season right now so it is expected to have more floods coming in the next few months. The property has fruit trees and some flowering plants buts that's about it. I would greatly appreciate it if you guys could be my mentor in starting at least a small vegetable garden. Having a mentor who would also look at my progress is also a big help. You can contact me through my e-mail tianaellecharabalos09@gmail.com Thank you and God bless.

Hey Rachelle, welcome to permies!

Unfortunately, I'm not sure I can help you myself, but I do think there's a couple things you could do to help other people help you. If you're comfortable sharing what part of the world your in, that could be super helpful — you might even find some people here on the forums that are close by! I'd also suggest perhaps starting with some pictures, and maybe explain some more of your current progress. What kind of vegetables are you trying to grow? What kind of garden prep have you done so far?

This is the part of the property I wanted to work on. It is a shady part.
