As I said before, after reading Gaia’s Garden (and another German permaculture book from our local library) I had this sudden urge to go permacultural right now. Urban gardening, yay!

I got a wonderful Christmas present: A copy of the second edition of Toby Hemenway’s Gaia’s Garden. I was thrilled! I just love to read inspiring books, and this certainly is one. I devoured it.
I just discovered this and I’m radiantly happy with the idea: Compost heating, also known as a Biomeiler! Organic waste + a little maintenance and cultivation = compost or terra preta + biogas + warm water. Brilliant.
Recently I came across two one-day permaculture workshops, and of course I couldn’t resist: The first was a permaculture starter course with a focus on urban gardening on October 5, the other was a practical course about terra preta on October 19. Both took place in our local climate garden (part of the university’s climate farming research project).
