Autumn: a new era

It’s been awhile… September has been filled with harvest all over the region, a killer frost or two, and exciting plans for the future. In the coming week, I hope to plant garlic in my yard for harvest next summer and some cold weather crops for winter, figure out a cheap and easy way to mulch them, and attend PRI’s urban farming graduation ceremony followed by a harvest party hosted by Growing Lots — oof!

So look forward to a post or two about these exciting events, and prepare yourselves for the future of this blog: your ability to post to it. If ever you have anything you’d like to share, simply comment on a post with your email and we’ll add you to the list of contributors, at which point you can submit a post at any time. Anything about permaculture, especially in the region, is welcome — whether you want to brag about your farm, enlighten us about cool things you do at home, tell us about a book or article, spread the news about local events and programs, etc., etc.

Until next time, I’ll leave you with a quote.

“A sustainable community is designed in such a way that its ways of life, business, economy, physical structures and technologies do not interfere with nature’s inherent ability to sustain life.” — Fritjof Capra (read the article here).

Hope to hear from you all.
