I've been lurking around Permies for a long time, but now that we are actually, really, truly, honest-to-goodness in the planning stages of our permaculture homesteading future, I reckon it's time we actually joined the forum! We have some background in rural living/skills, but are basically both both babies in this, starting from scratch. So we'll have lots of questions as we go! We are a couple with two (soon to be three) children, gearing up to leave the military and go full civilian on a homestead (tbd) in the Northeast early next year. We are originally mid-west people, but fell in love with New England when we were stationed there.
Hopefully we will eventually have help to offer at the forum, too, not just a million and three questions to ask
