Started my forest garden in Minnesota in 2008 and have been helping others create more ever since. My spot in Minnesota is 2 acres and is a cold climate (zone 4) with a dome greenhouse. Its my heaven on earth! I created www.growparadise.com to help spread permaculture as much as I can. I really feel that is is THE approach that will fix just about everything troubling us and the planet. If we get permaculture into our lives, everything else seems to fall into place.
I got into permaculture through my old raw vegan days - growing our own just made so much sense, especially in the age of um...wackiness.
Much respect to the fellow permies!!!
