The same way I learned about permaculture
It's local and vibrant
Rural, my family and I live on 11 acres...mostly forest, stream, and rock walls...real Maine feel. Ponds are coming as fast as my shovel can take me (pretty slow, good thing I'm not in a rush).
I'm an engineer by trade/education, but a gardener/environmentalist by heart. I started Maine Biochar as one way of helping deal with our carbon emissions and I'm an amateur plant breeder working on Maine hardy citrus plants among other things.
Just a great group of people. Very friendly, supportive and knowledgeable.
