As of August 1st 2014, I’ve dropped out of the corporate world and am keen to find a very different passion. Being a city kid married to a Permaculture Nut (originally from farming stock - seedling, not grafted!), things were bound to rub off and now I’m ready to get my hands dirty.
So I’m setting off on a scary journey (with fabulous support crew, thanks to the Nut!) to seek out work/play which grabs my interest and satisfies my environmental conscience.
I welcome you to join me on this adventure.
The plan is to include snippets of Permaculture information for those just starting our on the journey - like me - or those just interested in gardening activities and methods. Hopefully we'll learn heaps together as I investigate each topic and we might even surprise some of our more learned colleagues along the way.
My plan is to investigate individual plants, insects, animals, structures, and quirky items, with additional info on activities I participate in which I think might interest others.
Identifying myself as the Soil Hugger comes from the belief that all good things come from great soil.....Tree hugging is great, but Soil Hugging is better!. Obviously the development of that great soil and the management of what grows (and lives) in it (on it and over it) will feature heavily in the blog from a gardening perspective, but also my curiosity about Soil Carbon Sequestration, and my desire to study this more, will potentially influence the blog. We'll see how that pans out.
Anyway, enough intro…. let’s get onto the interesting stuff. Feel free to ask questions, make requests, provide feedback, and add your own stories, but most of all enjoy and encourage others to do the same.

I'll also include the links on our Terra Perma Facebook Page, so feel free to follow my journey from that vantage point!
I hope you enjoy the ride.
