What do you know about permaculture?

I don't have any hands on experience with permaculture, but I was able to briefly study it while at Sac State. To my understanding permaculture is sort of an extension to ecology yet applied in a environmental design kind of way. Understanding how different plants, bugs, and wildlife interact to create a harmonious ecological system. It's a sustainable design which, in my opinion, could be used to replace our current agricultural monoculture system. Well, anyway, I have a lot to learn and look forward to doing so!

Do you enjoy hands on projects?

Greatly!

What are you looking for from this group?

I am looking to meet new people who share similar interests in the environment and sustainable practices of human beings. I also would like to learn more about permaculture and anything else involved.

What permaculture emphasis grabs you the most? Sustainable gardening and farming, natural building, activism, cooporative communities, other?

Sustainable gardening and farming mostly. I wrote my thesis on agricultural subsidies in the United States and found our current system to be extremely wasteful and deeply corrupt. I am a firm believer we need to change our agricultural practices and adopt more sustainable ways to feed our growing population. I think permaculture is one of those sustainable practices which seems to have a lot of promise in doing so, but like I've said, everything I know is out of a book. I would like to join this group to gain a more hands on experience.

Introduction

Hi! My name is Daniel and I am very interested in permaculture. I recently received my degree in Environmental Studies at Sacramento State University and have been looking for a new group that's interested in sustainability.
