I don't know very much about permaculture admittedly, I've read various books but there is a limit to that, and now is the time for some hands-on work. I'm currently in BAMSI (Bahamian Agricultural & Marine Institute), but it's becoming clear to me that the quality of the education isn't worth the time, not to mention it's still online. If anyone could help me get in contact with someone who would like and appreciate a young person working and learning with them thank you.  I'm a 19-year-old man, gonna be 20 soon and I'm eager to work hard. Lived in The Bahamas all my life and I'm willing to move.


Thank you for reading.

Welcome Ricardo!

There is a LOT of information provided here on Permies in a variety of topics but nothing beats some hands on time. Permaculture... well growing anything even is a long game without instant gratification but it makes the successes that much better!

Read up on the boot program, you are young and it might be up your alley!

I am certainly thinking about it and it does look quite good, what's the soonest I could go next year.
