I live in N E Scotland on a three acre permaculture smallholding which my husband and I have been slowly developing for seventeen years. We both belong to the Aberdeen permaculture group and are part of the new transition Banff group which is in it's formative stages as I write this.
We also run a green forum with an active timebank system, to connect with like minded folks in and around this area. We opted for timebank instead of LETS for it's simplicity to administrate. We have an annual seed share day and various social craft/tutorial meets.
My long term goals are to expand our local networks up here, via the forum and various groups, pass on skills, learn from others and continue to improve on our own permaculture system.
