Welcome to our Permaculture Homestead!

Join us as we compost the mistakes of our past, and use them to transform this world into a living paradise, because…well, why not? As we build our resilient Permaculture Homestead from the ground up, we are sharing all the cool ideas and methods we discover on our Blog. You can also learn from all the inspiring and knowledgeable folks we meet along the way by listening to our Permaculture Realized Podcast.

Create an Edible Ecosystem to Live Within
A Permaculture Homestead is a habitat that is intentionally designed to meet the needs of Homo Sapiens in a way that works with, and enriches native ecosystems. A variety of plants, animals, fungi and biota are chosen that can provide food, fuel (wood), fiber, fodder (livestock feed), fertilizer, farm-aceuticals (plant medicine), and of course FUN! In practice, this looks like chestnut trees and apple trees that feed your pastured pigs, chickens that fertilize your garden beds, chives growing near your cucumbers to repel cucumber beetles, heating your cabin with scrap wood from your neighbors sawmill (and sharing some of your home brewed Mead with her) etc.
It’s like a martial art form that uses the soil, water, wind, sun, and biology as weapons against climate change, hunger, and desertification.
