Permaculture and organic principles combined to create a garden that feeds itself. Highly nutritious and healthy for both the planet and you! Methods may include composting, organic mulching, hugelkultur, and companion planting.
Living and producing food in a way that protects the environment, your health and the community around you. This includes things like using renewable materials in the house and cover cropping in the garden.
It’s a little bit farm, it’s a little bit homestead. It can be rural, urban or suburban and small-space friendly. A modern farmstead grows and preserves food for themselves. They may keep livestock or poultry.

You can start right now, whether you have a balcony, a yard, or acreage.
Let’s have some fun!
