Hi everyone!

I'm a newbie, Bec, from Tasmania.  We've just bought 40 acres that's already got a house and some other structures but the land needs a bit of work.  It's acidic soil, has some quite boggy patches and overall needs a bit of TLC and planning.  Hence I'm excited to learn about permaculture's principles of design to help the land. 

We're super lucky in Tasmania to have great rainfall and I think that brings with it even more of a responsibility to ensure that the land is productive and well cared for.

I'd love to hear where everyone is from,

Hi, I'm Sonia, based near Melbourne (Preston), just starting my permie journey. I've been growing vegies for a while, with mixed success, but have just bought some land and am looking forward to building and growing sustainably and in sync with nature. Anyone else here nearby?
