Well Glen has begun his foray into permaculture his block is slashed, he has brought in a chap to create a dam, swales will be created, fruit trees and rain forest trees will be planted, vegetable beds will be planted as well. He has bought a tractor to help with the labour and will cut and mill his own timber, first job a shed and then a ford across the creek, he can't wait roll on March.
