Hello all, I've been interested in permaculture for a number of years and done a lot of reading already. I wanted to take a on the ground course last summer but was able to work it out. Just this evening I thought to myself...hmm I wonder if there is anything online, so after a quick 'google' I came across this. Perfect! I live on an acre and half property in Ontario Canada that we purchased last summer. It's pretty much bare bones and quite wild. I managed to get in a small veggie garden with a focus on heirloom tomatoes last summer and am currently planning for next season. I have a background in herbal medicine, ecology and have done a lot of activist work around sustainability in and urban setting. I'm quite excited to have moved out to the country but I always have 'urban' situations in mind, particularly around small-scale, small space food production. Glad to have come across this and plan to follow along. I'll set up a blog early next week.
Thanks for doing this and I think using a wiki format is great!
Hi Jade, its great you found us. I've set up an email forum with Google groups. You're welcome to join that too if you're up for discussions etc, or send me your email address and I'll add you. I dunno if an email forum would be any better than what we have going here though... my guess is that it will be easier for people like me who sometimes forget to check anything other than my email :)
Otherwise, we will try to keep the Schedule up to date with media and resources on the topics we are covering as we get to them. If you find stuff to do with the session topic, feel free to add it too!
Looking forward to seeing your blog.
