I live in the NW suburbs of Minnesota on a 1 acre lot. You can read more about it at the vegarden project page here: http://www.permacultureglobal.org/projects/60-vegarden
I became interested in organic agriculture 6 or 7 years ago and soon after read One Straw Revolution. I have yet to read most of the permaculture tomes.
I'd like to do a PDC in the next couple of years and work towards growing more of my own food and using my knowledge as a second income stream.
