Good day to you all I am a 33 years old man, married, father of one boy and just made my final decision and that is to turn my back to everything what the modern society is, produces, promotes and represents in terms of products, ideeas, ideologies, technology, methods and styles. As a result I decided to completly embrace permaculture, homesteading, humanism and critical thinking. It isn’t a decision made in haste … actually, since 2009 I think daily about all aspects involved in such a radical decision. The trigger, so to speak, was the lecture of „The One-Straw Revolution” by Masanobu Fukuoka (whom I consider to be like a mentor for me) which I read twice in just one week, absorbing it’s spirit with my hole heart. Ever since that day I made a habit out of searching and reading such books while taking notes, thinking and deciding about why, when and how should I make the first steps in this direction. Now I am the owner of an entire library (thanks also to the generousity of Soil and Health website – if it is not allowed to mention it’s name I kindly ask the moderators to delete this part of my post) which I began to type, sort and arrange it in my bookshelfs. I am far from beeing completly original but, as much as I can, I shall try to become a reliable partner of conversation for any given member of this forum who wishes to get involved in different matters regarding permaculture (and on private channels on topics like homesteading, humanism and critical thinking). I will continue to post in this thread presenting my own particular initiative regarding my own permaculture farm. Greetings from N-V Romania!
