I recently received my MS in ecology and I have been a writer for various outlets for the past seven years. I'm interested in learning how to live sustainability in upstate New York. I'm still learning, so this blog is just my way of exploring how to be self sufficient in the urban area where I am right now. Can I produce healthy fruits and vegetables for my family in a small yard in a rented home? We will see.

Patrick,
I kind of know what you mean! I'm working on getting started in permaculture in central NY right now because I'm attached to the location, even though it might not be the ideal location. I've been working on a local farm learning a lot and that can be a big push to get you started! I think it's right in line with the principles of permaculture that you don't need to have lots of money to get started - you work with what you have! I think it's a really great move for you to do the WWOOFing thing - I know many people who have done that and had amazing experiences where they learned a lot. I know sometimes it seems frustrating when something's a long way off and you want to get started right away, but it sounds like you're doing what you can with the opportunities you have right now! Keep working at it.

Hey Folks!

My name is BettyJo and I live in Central New York! (Syracuse)

I've been interested in permaculture and homesteading for a while and I'm currently doing a little bit of gardening in the yard of my rental property and working on a small organic farm. I'm trying to learn as much as I can before making the plunge into buying some property and starting my own homestead!

Thanks everyone!
