& Permaculture Center
We model and provide information that enables people to provide for their own & their communities’ needs for food, energy, shelter,
& to design decent lives without exploitation or pollution from the smallest practical area of land.
In season, we grow and sell vegetable and flower seedlings
followed by produce from the gardens and orchard.
Online and in-the-field events will be offered as conditions allow.

The Permaculture Handbook, by Peter Bane, is a step-by-step, beautifully illustrated guide to creating resilient and prosperous households and neighborhoods, complemented by extensive case studies of four successful farmsteads and market gardens. This comprehensive manual casts garden farming as both an economic opportunity and a strategy for living well with less money.
Permaculture is about working with the earth and with each other to repair the damage of industrial overreach and to enrich the living world that sustains us. The Permaculture Handbook is the definitive, practical North American guide to this revolutionary practice, and is a must-read for anyone concerned about creating food security, resilience and a legacy of abundance rather than depletion.
