    Hi

    I live on a small island in the South of the UK.

    I am a COMPLETE beginner with no knowledge but a (slightly muddled) dream of what I want to achieve. I have a very small piece of land (approx half an acre) which has been badly overgrazed in the past, along with another piece of around an acre and a half which I rent. I have ponies, goats and poultry which complicates the issue of trying to restore the land to how I want it to be.

    I found permaculture through the idea of forest gardening and basically want to return my land to a productive, nature friendly environment. I know that probably sounds a bit vague and dreamy but hard to explain any better than that at this point.

    So basically I am here to learn, learn and learn some more (I do a very good impression of a sponge)

    Looking forward to getting to know people
