I heat with wood, grow fruits and veggies, save seeds, can foods, ferment, brew, keep chickens, want rabbits, compost, hunt and could use a few ideas on how best to use my big yard on Staten Island to be more ecologically sustainable/self sufficient
We live in a disposable society- something's gotta give, I decided it would be me
No course, just common sense
Not as interested in the social (fair distribution, diversity..) but more the practical aspects of permaculture. Ways to reduce my negative impact, and increase my positive impact on the earth. Passive solar, reclaiming heat from a wood stove to heat my water, humanure..
Replacing ornamental curb trees with trees that bear real food, for all to have and enjoy.
