Trust in the Power of Nature
Perma-culture is a fancy way of saying , “reclaim your money and put it (and your time) to use making food to sustain your life”. In other words…. Here is the door to getting yourself out of the income-debt merry-go-round.
My adventure into permanent agriculture has transformed over the years. What it has become is a love of creating a sustainable and medicinal Food Forest. It’s a good thing to check into…. If just to read about. Perma culture is just where I started, and it’s a great start to developing a good relationship nature.
And just like any real relationship, it’s best to get to know everything you can before committing yourself.
My journey began about 12 years ago when I started reading about plants, gardening, perma-culture. I liked what I read, and so I read, .. and read.

When I finally came home again, 3 years ago, I decided to start my own food forest by introducing 5 new plants each spring into my garden, front yard, and just about anyplace I have grass. My goal is to get to know each plant intimately…. (Working tinctures out, storing, processing techniques), and to slowly trade my grass for plants. I’m a nature girl … through and through.

This is because the lawn is the single piece of nature that the bulk of people, living outside of big cities, encounter on a daily or weekly basis. If we can transform the lawn, we can transform ourselves.
This is why I am so excited about this post–through the example of Nature’s Harvest Urban Permaculture Farm…
