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?

Alaska Permaculture Network

This social network is meant to catalyze connectivity and information sharing between Alaskans interested in practicing permaculture.

Start or join a discussion or group!
Upload files that are interesting, share links, photos, and videos.

In addition, the Anchorage Permaculture Guild, a subgroup of this network, meets on the first or second Sunday of the month at various people's houses. Please check the events to see when the next one is. The mission of the Anchorage Permaculture guild is to nurture a resilient, sub-arctic community by promoting, teaching, and practicing permaculture.

People in other communities are highly encouraged to start local groups of their own!

Ning site -- worth $200/year?

Cindee has pointed out that the permaculture ning resource is really being underutilized, and this made me think about possible reasons for that.

1) I’m already on Facebook, where I have joined other permaculture groups. The ning site seems like a duplication of that. Plus it requires an additional username and password, and I forget to check it. The functionality doesn’t seem that different from Facebook, so I have a hard time understanding why there’s a separate site.

2) I…

A More Nutritious Garden

The weather has been startlingly spring-like lately and seed catalogs have been arriving to the Williams Street Farmhouse in droves.  I planted my first seeds at the beginning of the month (onions, leeks, celery and some herbs) and we can officially say, let the gardening season begin!  This is one of my favorite parts of the gardening season, the dreaming stage.

This year my dreams are fueled by an excellent book called …
