Hi, My name is Chris and I live in a small town in Wales called Tywyn. I'm just getting into Peak Prosperity and looking for advice or local connections. I'm starting by looking at my food production options and considering an Allotment, so any advice would be welcomed.

Are there any active support groups in Wales/UK?

Thanks

Chris H

Permaculture, farming starting point?

I want to learn more about Permaculture and Farming.  Is there a good place farm in the area to start learning(without paying)? Looking to volunteer.

Thank You

a call to relocate to Europe

my argument is simple: mankind did not pop into existence a few thousand years ago. So what are you prepping for? A limited cataclysm did not wipe the Earth clean of people 13,000 years ago. It was much more serious than that. Our ancestors were neither suicidal, retarded, nor ignorant. And yet they were thrown into a new stone age (after building things like Puma Punku which we couldn't build today if we chose to).

Geoff Lawton's 2015 Online Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC) Course

I am currently in my second week of taking Geoff Lawton's online PDC, and it is literally blowing my mind so far.  This is not my first exposure to a PDC -- I took an on-site one locally in 2012, and it was definitely a valuable experience.  But Geoff's PDC is a whole other order of magnitude -- the depth of understanding of natural patterns he brings is unique, and he has the talent of taking a complex and complicated subject and distilling it down to its simplest elements, so it is easily understood.  It is informative AND inspiring, and I highly recommend to anyone

Viability of CSA models in bad times

My wife and I are embarking on a small farming adventure.  We have several acres of fruit trees and garden space we are working on building into a small organic, permaculture based, market farm.  We are both working full time jobs that pay well and are slowly buying equipment and installing fencing and irrigation and starting a small food forest.

Annual Scion Exchange Jan 24th @ 10am Santa Rosa Veterans Building - share/get fruit tree cuttings or get a fruit tree for $8

I have not been to one of these before but it sounds fantastic. I am copying info from posts on a Santa Rosa forum on Reddit.

Big event where you can get scions (aka cuttings) of interesting uncommon varieties that you can graft on to your existing fruit trees or rootstocks OR you can buy a rootstock there for a very small price ($3 or so) and have an expert graft your scion of choice for another small price ($5 or so).

If you want to help in a great global environmental project

I have recently been inspired by the activities of whatifwechange.org, which encourages people interested in investing and/or donating money in an international project that helps indigenous groups living in degraded land to understand the damage they have done to their local ecosystem by trying to continue their traditional way of life, eg by deforestation or over-fishing. Then, with co-ordination and financial compensation from the project, they start acting together to restore their land to productive functioning.
