What do you know about permaculture?

We practice composting in our yard, save seeds, and intuitively try to be as sustainable and resourceful as possible in our gardening efforts. Mara is also certified in Permaculture Design.

Do you enjoy hands on projects?

We take on a lot of hands on projects ourselves, such as a fruit catcher we constructed for picking and a grow light that we just set up to keep seedlings warm this winter. We're looking to build our own solar dehydrator within the coming year or so.

What are you looking for from this group?

We're looking to connect with local gardeners, permaculturists, and health enthusiasts, as we consider ourselves as such. We are also avid fruit eaters, so we would like to connect with those who have an interest in healthy eating or would like to know more.

What permaculture emphasis grabs you the most? Sustainable gardening and farming, natural building, activism, cooporative communities, other?

All of the above. Ideally, we would like to be as sustainable as possible in how we grow our food and use or repurpose our wastes, for what we can get away with in where we live :) And in general, we'd like to learn a lot of skills for the future.

Introduction

We are Dustin and Mara. We recently moved to Sacramento, and we're very interested in gardening and growing our own food. Nearly all of our food is fresh produce, and we'd like to be more involved with the local food and health community here.
