|Collage - Deep Green Permaculture|
It's a challenge finding trustworthy voices on the internet with so many websites serving so many agendas.
For me, Deep Green Permaculture is one of those trustworthy voices. I don't go there every day but I do go back, for ideas and solutions, inspiration and reassurance.
Put together by a dedicated, active, engaged Permaculture practitioner who lives in Preston (making it very locally relevant to those of us in Moreland), it's a "guide for everyone out there who wants to learn about creating their own sustainable, organic gardens".
Firstly, there's a useful, well written examination of Permaculture ethics and design principles. These things underpin the author's garden so it's valuable to have this frame of reference when you're browsing around the website.
It also features lots of easy-to-follow, informative explanations and "how tos" like:
- hot composting,
- companion planting,
- making home-made sprays,
- building raised garden beds,
