In Seattle our block was filled with fruit trees, rosemary bushes, blueberry brambles...food was everywhere. With an intro to permaculture design, we hope to find the skills and motivation to recreate this in our new urban landscape.
I've read books, but have had little hands-on experience. We lived in a small town in Western NC for many years where many of our friends and neighbors were urban homesteaders, and the practice of permaculture was widespread.
kitchen garden experience; urban farming and organic farming experience; coordinated youth development and training programs via urban farming
My partner and I recently moved to Chicago from Seattle. We are looking forward to meeting our new neighbors!
