Hey guys. We were all noobs once. Just start posting. Ask questions in existing threads that interest you, and if you can't find threads talking about stuff you want to talk about, start a new thread in the appropriate forum.

Dr. Redhawk's soil series is great for both people who are intellectually curious, as well as those who want concrete steps to take to improve their own soil conditions. There's gold in virtually every post of every thread, so go slowly and read it all. Don't get intimidated by the sheer volume of it all. It's just well-explained and explored through conversation.

And if you do anything remotely permacultural, post about it, and post pics if you can. Even if it's assistance you require, ask. There are a great many knowledgeable individuals here generous with their time and expertise.

Welcome to Permies.

Welcome, Benjamin and Susan; I love this community, and I hope you grow to love it as well!!
All questions are good questions, and please post your own experiences, successes and failures, to share; we lend an understanding ear, (hopefully) thoughtful and valuable advice, and when your first few shoots spring from the ground, or your new calf takes its first steps, we will leap for joy alongside you!

Welcome to Permies!!!
