Hi there! My name is Evan, and I just wanted to introduce myself to everyone before I start posting anywhere else on these forums. I don't remember exactly when I first found this site, probably many years ago when I was looking for some good information on alternative building, rocket stoves, and permaculture, of course! I've been aware of it for a while, just never signed up or engaged in the forums, though I have listened to many of Paul's videos and podcasts, and have read a few threads here and there.

Personally, I've been utilizing various permaculture practices in my own gardening efforts for the last decade or so, and plan to build both a rocket mass heater and a wofati sometime in the near future (hopefully). I've been experimenting alone for a very long time, and would like to get more involved in some like-minded folks, either online or IRL...or ideally, both! I really love the LIC idea that Paul brought up in a podcast I listened to recently.

I'm a father and husband, artist, musician, vineyard keeper, beer brewer, web designer, and podcaster...and I'm sure I'll share all sorts of links to things I've been part of, created, and/or had some sort of interest in over the years, as I get to know you all here. I've lived in the Midwest most of my life and really want to do more with homesteading, permaculture gardening, wild foraging, mycology, food preservation/fermentation, natural building, and eventually beekeeping and animal husbandry.

Nice to "meet" you all!

Hi Evan! Welcome to Permies !   Lots of folks here more than happy to discuss all things permaculture. I will happily talk your ear off about rocket mass heaters.  Grab a cup of coffee and start perusing the forums, before long you will be posting all the time.

Thanks for the warm welcome, everyone! I can see that I'm going to enjoy posting here, and will hopefully be sharing some of the things I've been working on very soon.

If you two don't stop this rough-housing somebody is going to end up crying. Sit down and read this tiny ad:
