Hello, new to permaculture but am supper excited about the possibilities! We live in Hudson, Wisconsin on a city lot and I want to turn it into an urban homestead complete with chickens and a greenhouse next summer. I have begun an aquaponics system in my basement and have been making my own wine for a couple of months. My husband's family also owns a hunting cabin up in Dairyland on 80 acres which we spend all of our freetime. We would love to retire up there in the woods but right now have to keep working and paying "the man." We are planning also to build a small "hobbit house" out of straw and cob out in the forest on our 80 acres for fun. For all of you around the twin cities there is a great brew shop in Stillwater, MN which also carries the wine/beer making supplies plus the supplies for hydroponics and aquaponics called Still H2O. I just discovered it and thought I'd pass it on to those who may be interested. Also, if you are starting an aquaponics system Future Farm in Baldwin, WI will provide you with tilapia, catfish or prawns for your small hobby system.
