What is Permaculture?

Permaculture is a holistic design process, using ecology as a basis for designing integrated systems: food production, community, economics, housing, with an embued ethic of caring for the earth, caring for people and sharing the surplus. That's asking us to limit our consumption and design for abundance and then share that abundance with each other.

We can also apply the principals to design our life. Using thoughtful observation look at your daily practices. What elements contribute to a healthy life and which do not? Waste= food. What areas of your life are there wastes? How can they feed into another system?

This is not just organic gardening, it's the garden of our lives. Understand how nature works and then apply it to our lives. Cleaning waste water. Experimenting with alternative fuels. How can we change the patterns of our behavior to match nature's systems?

Annual Garden Bike Tour at Alaska

August 17, 2014 from 2pm to 5pm
This is an invitation to the Anchorage Permaculture Guild’s annual Garden Bike Tour on August 17th from 2 to 5pm. This is a modest tour in the Spenard district of small and messy gardens that might inspire beginners and experienced gardeners with new ideas or remind of the old tricks. The fun is in the biking and getting together as a group, rain or shine. We will begin at the C-St municipality community garden (C-St and 19th), where we will get a list of the other gardens. We are still looking…See More

Picking greens?

I have been out of the circle for awhile and will be in Anchorage for 10 days until August 3rd. I'd love to find a group to pick greens with before I have to go back to the village.

Want composted goat manure, have truck?

Composted goat manure is being offered in the valley on Sunday afternoon. They have a loader coming so there is no shoveling on that end. I have no truck but would like to share a load with somebody. I really do not want that much. Please call if you are interested. Thanks!
