Just published a review on Suite101.com of Gaia’s Garden, the book that led me to Holmgren’s Permaculture. I tremendously enjoyed reading Hemenway’s book and I hope the review does it justice.
I also hope that, once we have some land, I can put the permaculture way of gardening into practice. I might have to revisit the review at that point.
We found a house for sale, quite a whiles west of Boston but close to the commuter rail, that we might go and take a look at. It’s 1500 sq.f. (too big, really, but maybe we could close some of it off during winter) and 0.95 acres of land. With that plural, “0.95 acres” sounds like it is more than “1 acre”. We can’t afford it, really… but it would be so sweet.
