Compost tea. Yeah, there's an app for that. #compost #gardening

I've been an informal student of permaculture for the last 5 years or so, and have been trying to apply permaculture principles to both my garden and yard as well as in my own personal habits (yes, permaculture can be applied to a wide range of activities beside just landscaping and gardening).

I'm a father, a blogger, a social media fool and a green crunchy treehugger who embraces new media and social networking to help spread the word about positive social change. I also build WordPress sites and teach small businesses how to use blogging and social media.
