Well, the universe must love me!
I talked to my mom, who is usually pretty possessive about her gardening, and she told me I could redesign the entire kitchen garden, install an herb garden, and do composting. It took me a minute to comprehend what she was saying. I mean, I'm not an idiot, but the most gardening I've done is help her plant and harvest each year - and that has never involved anything too spectacular. There are conditions, of course. She says I can do what I want as long as I don't ruin her flowers, spend a lot of her money, and I actually make it better than before.
I think she trusts me too much. . . .
I guess I had better start designing!
@Cortland, @John~ I'll definitely document the whole process. And as far as how I want to incorporate permaculture in my life? Well, I kind of want permaculture to be my life.
@Craig~ I don't really have much to put on the resume yet, but I'll definitely PM you a copy when I'm finished.
