I'm gathering all the pieces of myself back into order after the earthquake and am wondering what next? I'm aware of a growing pessimism haunting me as I consider the possibilities that might be over looked in the re-imagining of Christchurch. I want to release this by talking and learning more about transition town initatives around our planet that could inspire us, by hearing what others are thinking and feeling, and by continuing to learn more permaculture design and self reliant practicalities in my own back yard. I'd like some help with design ideas for my families new home.
Here are some of the factors that I'm considering. I 'm renting. I want a pond, I'm going to get bees, I've got some chickens, I have a glasshouse, I want grass for the kids and dog, I want to grow more food. I want to better use resources, I'm willing to do more work at the moment having a predominantly annual based vege crop because I'm unsure of the duration of our tenancy. We do have a pear tree, 3 1/2 apple trees, and raspberries. We live near railway track and a stream. There are some of the elements. I would love to have a designing blitz for my house or equally anybody elses place or for a public place. Would anyone like to get together
Thursday 7th April 6.30 or else on Sunday 10th at 5.30pm. You would be welcome to meet here at my place.
Look forward to hearing from you.
