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?

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.

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!

Girdwood Fungus Fair

 Paul Stamets says that mycelium intelligence selects people to communicate with them. Fungi are attracted to mycophiles like him. As I was mushroom gathering with my friend Bridget during the Girdwood Fungus Fair, I noticed that mushrooms were attracted to her. As soon as we stepped out of the car, a beautiful Admirable Bolete (Boletus mirabilis) chose to reveal its velvety brown cap to Bridget.“The mushrooms are calling for you,” I kept jokingly repeating to her. They were. Why her? Why not…See More

To that end both Saskia's garden and my garden will be open, as well as the kid's garden at the Anchorage Waldorf School. If you are looking for some entertainment this Sunday anytime between…

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!
