Delighted to see this community already in existence!

I am on my pathway for a Diploma in Applied Permaculture, having completed the 72 Hour Design Course in 2007. I am based in the UK. I would be delighted to attempt to answer any questions which anyone may have about what those training courses offer.

I am vegan, so I am specializing in stock-free permaculture - this means that I do not include captive animals in my designs. Two leading UK vegan permaculturists are Aranya (see http://www.aranyagardens.co.uk/) and Graham Burnett (see http://www.grahamburnett.net/).

My favourite permaculture book at this stage of my pathway is Patrick Whitefield's Earth Care Manual (http://www.chelseagreen.com/bookstore/item/the_earth_care_manual/) - focusing on temperature climates, it is the ideal starting place for many questions about creating sustainable human habitats in the UK.

Glad to have you here! I lurk on the permaculture community on LJ -- being a latecomer to the party, I would have felt kind of weird about trying to stir up discussion there, so I just kept lurking. A new journal service seemed like a good opportunity to speak up a bit more *g*.

Hey, now that we're in open beta I should go make an admin post or something....

Thanks for the links! I'm vegan as well, so they're greatly appreciated.
