I was first introduced to permaculture by a friend while living in San Fransisco. Then at PowerShift 2013 there were many workshops, trainings, and panels sorrounding FoodJustice and Permaculture. That inspired me to start an urban farm in my community with a focus on permacuture design concepts.
I'm in the process if raising funds to take a permaculture design course in the near future! I've learned a lot from the amazing woman of The Edible Garden in Clearwater, Florida.
I'm working toward starting an organic urban farm in corona Queens, that will incorporate a lot of permaculture design concepts . I'm also working hard to introduce the concept of composting and reducing waste to local businesses, after doing so in my own home.
Please recommend more reading material! :)
I would love to touch on how low income families can take part in: the local growing of food and bring food sovereignty to their communities, reduce waste in their households, learn to be more self sufficient and sustaining, be part of a more holistic healthcare system, and gain access to affordable housing that would encourage and allow them to maintain these principles.
Hi, i'm Denise.
