Permaculture can be overwhelming and involved. When I first heard of Permaculture is was in a book called Self Sufficiency for the 21 Century by Dick Strawbridge. I read that book in a day and have been hooked ever since. I read many books on Permaculture and recommend you reading. One Straw Revolution, Gaia’s Garden, and of course Bill Mollison’s Permaculture Design Manual are a must read for anyone searching for Permaculture knowledge. Also, I absorb many online sources. Permies.com and thesurvivalpodcast.com are two great sources. There are lots of different areas people concentrate on from food forestry to rocket mass heaters. Its was very confusing. Until I heard Paul Wheaton say that people chose to specialize in aspects of Permaculture but implement the basics. Academically speaking I think I’ve gotten most of what I need from lessons and study( books and such). Time to step into the advanced stages. Put on my big boy pants as it were. Start hitting the design and restore my homestead. Plant my trees, build my hugle beds and grow food and as a person, father, and husband. Time for real learning to begin. Get your hand dirty kind of learning. Discover how beautiful I can make by land and my life. May the blessings of liberty be upon you!
