I was looking up eco villages online, and I found a 116 page book on the essentials of starting one....i think that permaculture is my calling and I like people, and the thought of a giant family...like this site except I dont get to see you guys on a day to day basis ((except on the internet)) and interact with yall' it would be sooooooooo much fun!!!!!!!!!
Moth I am grateful for ya! this is doable, definetly doable!
my obsession of natural living has taken me a long way and I am so surprised by myself everyday when I think of something I never thought I would...my plans have changed so many times from holistic nutritionist (that wouldnt work bc I dont get a thrill out of planning meals for people), then it went to start my own organic farm and educational program (that was more up my alley but not quite what I was looking for) now, I have been researching permaculture for about a year now not too in indepth but you know skimming the top off of information (tasting the recipe before it's done) and my mind just keeps on coming back to permaculture...and I just cant help but smile when I hear the word or see the word or see anything to do with permaculture! I am in love with the concept and ready to take that love forward...and the journey begins
Majority of my life I wanted to get into organic farming and be able to sustain myself off of my own land. I took a little hiateus when my brother wanted to start a family owned brewery (lol). The idea never struck a note with me, but I talked myself into loving it. I brewed for 2.5 years, and then found raw.
When I found raw, brewing just wasn't proper for me. It was too wasteful, too pollutive (to our bodies), and what not. So, I decided to get back into farming.
I've farmed on many farms, realizing that it is tough work to do by yourself. So I've always been concerned on how I would pull that off, wether it was through work exchange or whatever. Then, actually really recently, I truly discovered permaculture. I mean, I heard the name for a long time but never really knew what it meant. Untill one day, I was on 30bananas and watched a video I think free posted up. It was of a permafarm. I loved it. I started researching more and more and found all of Geoff Lawtons stuff, and then Bill Mollison. I realized right then and there, that this is what We need today. This is what I can do, to help out and love my life.
