Hello, I'm a new Permaculture graduate (Jan 2013) and looking to reach out with the work of the Center for Sustainable Community, a non-profit based in Stelle, IL. You can find details and updates about this work here on the PRI website.
Personally, I am interested in beekeeping, intensive gardening techniques, sourdough breads, goat-keeping, and ways to support and rebuild community through group activities, such as food preservation, co-ops, and alternative economics (i.e. the Gift Economy.) I have one beehive at the moment; for 2013 I will be keeping an additional Top Bar Hive and working on building soil in my backyard garden.
Please get in touch if you want to offer advice or ask me a question!
