Oh well! If you ever make it our way, please stop by! It would be great to meet you and have you sign my book, assuming it's unsigned when I get it! I'm buying a second one to give to our fibre artist friend at the store as the matter of fact.

Keep up the awesome work! Love what you're doing!

Hi there! I'm excited about getting the book!

I did have a question about whether you will do a book signing tour in the U.S. I live I California and have a business that's a nursery/market/gift shop/café, and we've had a couple book signings in the past. We've also invited a local fibre artist to do a couple of workshops that turned out great. Anyhow, if you're coming our way (Central Valley), we've love to have to sign books at our place!

Lemme know!

we grew strawberries on a first-year hugelbed last year and they loved it. i'd put them on the grow list.

Hi there permies.

I'm looking for comfrey seeds or root cuttings. And I'll pay! We're planting about 100 mixed stone fruit trees in a roughly one-acre food forest, so we've got a home for comfrey once we get our hands on some. Thanks.

Hi Paul. I do have a question. Sepp talks about the symbiotic relationship between his plants on his farm, and how incredibly healthy they are because of it. But he also mentions he has plants growing next to each other, in fact helping each other, that others say can't grow where they are growing.

So the question is, how did he figure out what plants work well other plants? Was it all trial and error? Are there resources the rest of us can turn to? Thanks.

there's a huge black walnut tree on a farm i'm sharing that will be trimmed in the near future, and i want to use the wood for a hugelbed. i've seen comments here that black walnut is a no-no for hugelkultur, but has anyone actually used black walnut in a hugelbed, and was there a problem? thanks!

I'm going to post the link on my website, StocktonHarvest.com. Forgot to mention that!
How's this: "Paul Wheaton spreads the word about permaculture via web forums, podcasts, videos and articles at a couple of his websites, permies.com and richsoil.com, where beginners and experts alike share information about how to grow your own food, build your own shelter, produce your own energy and generally live as sustainably as possible."
Sounds really cool Brenda!
