I've recently become aware of the many benefits of growing your own food and am trying to be more ''green''. I'm not thrilled by the options we have in the area and want to learn and possibly share my techniques.
Latest greatest meal cooked at home:
I'm still learning to cook better. Last good meal was the other day I made was cod fillet cooked with organic red onion, red green and yellow peppers. Then put onto a mix of various vegetables like organic tomatoes, different lettuces
Anything related to indoor vertical gardening

My latest DIY project:
I've made several hydroponic sets and am currently trying to make a closet grow area for some shorter plants like spinach, lettuce and kale
Hi, Ron. Welcome to HOMEGROWN! My name is Jennifer, and I'm the flock tender here (site updater and tweaker, feeder and waterer of content). I’m so glad you found us! I hope you’ll find plenty of projects and ideas here to spur you on, and I hope you’ll be game for sharing some of your own, too—maybe more info on and photos of your homemade hydroponics systems—in our member blog, The Stew. And since you’re interested greening up Michigan, you might consider joining the HOMEGROWN Michiganders groups. (Looks like it hasn't been active lately, but maybe it just needs you to jumpstart it!) Elsewhere on HOMEGROWN, you can always find the latest additions to the site at the top of the homepage, and if you’ve ever got questions, please don't hesitate to leave a comment on my profile page or shoot me a message. I hope you feel right at home!
hi Ron, i'm from perma-curious. we are a book group specifically, and are already over half done with the Manual, so are not accepting new members. however, i highly recommend reading Bill Mollison's books. permaculture is all about engineering. in fact, i kind of think it's more for engineers than your typical gardener. much of it is extremely dense earth science, and a lot of engineering concepts. feel free to start another group reading the manual! starting a group is easy, and i've had to turn several folks away who asked to join when we were just too far in. though i have to warn you, the sticking power is very low. i think there are 30 or 40 people signed up for the perma-curious group and only 3 of us still active in it!
good luck with your studies. feel free to read over our discussions, and check out my blog which has TONS of resources-- http://permacurious.wordpress.com
let me know if you have any other questions!
