Searching for something "I thought I'd read about somewhere", I went back, in a roundabout way, to one of my favourite permaculture sites:

Take a look - I find it upbeat and inspiring. I then went on to have another look at the uk permaculture forum and decided to join it today - lots to read, lots to learn. They're at

There's also

to look at, and various DVDs available. I find actually physically listening to the people doing it , very inspiring.

I've been interested in permaculture for years, and have been using various aspects in my gardens. There are a few projects I want to incorporate next year, so have been looking about for ideas and inspiration, reading suggestions and information. I'll seek out my permaculture books over the winter and re-read them, ready to get going when the weather is right.
It's nice to have projects and dreams, something to scheme over and plan, and with permaculture, there's always something you can do quickly/easily/make a start on/cheaply or free right away.
With a bit more hard work and diligence out there, I'm sure I can finally close the almost closed loop in the garden, and would like to try for a year buying in nothing for it - we'll see how it goes, but I feel the little germ of excitment already.

I know lol; - good word, though!
Glad you found them useful, Lisa. In my experience, most "permies" (an affectionate term!) are generous in their knowledge giving, and there's a huge amount of it out there, all fascinating.

Thanks so much for the link to spiralseed. I have been reading the fascinating articles on there whenever I have a spare moment. They are really inspirational and have given me food for thought as I replan my veg plot.
