I’ve bought my first book on Permaculture and WOW, what a new world is opening up. I’ve always had a vague idea that we could make things grow in arid areas, but I had no idea of what abundance truly is possible.
I strongly suggests you get going – and even if it’s just a small box of herbs on your windowsill. Once the gardening/growing bug bites you your life will be richer forever…without you having to spend big money 🙂
I can recommend the book Practical Permaculture: for Home Landscapes, Your Community, and the Whole Earth, by Jessi Bloom, Timber Press. Kindle Edition for a great manual on how to green your surroundings.
I’ve also done a quick Google search and am amazed that Permaculture is already taking hold in Namibia.
Here are some great sites to check out: including: http://www.permaculturenamibia.org,
