We are a developing non-profit called Foodscaping Co., run by Mike Brunt, a server engineer who lives on a permaculture farm, and Alexandra Bwye, a whole foods nutritionist. We are looking to start a group to discuss permaculture techniques and learn from one another, with Mike's farm being used a testing place and local land being transformed into edible landscapes that are low-maintenance and for public usage, in a similar fashion to Incredible Edible Todmorden in England. 

Group members have no fees to pay and the financial support will come from public donations. So far we have set up a polytunnel for winter gardening, created 2 keyhole gardens and an herb spiral utilizing hugelkulture, harvested 3 trees worth of apples to learn to use an apple press, brewed our own beer and kombucha, planted grapevines, began mushroom farming, gotten a coop to keep 4 chickens, utilized passive heating to prevent the polytunnel from freezing, added a rainwater harvesting system by the polytunnel, and have added a large solar panel for irrigating the polytunnel with the rainwater. We are looking to expand our projects to public land with the help of a group who is interested in learning while doing. If you are interested in joining the group, feel free to check out our website to see what we have worked on so far. www.foodscaping.co.
