It Begins

Kristine Beck
Charrette is a new word for me. It means a detailed design session. I hosted a charrette in my mother's home which is a short walk from my own property. My large and loving family is fully engaged and supportive of the efforts. As the owner of a 30 acre parcel of farm land (some field and some ...

Kids in Permaculture, A Personal Experience

Julie Pagliaro
Our daughter Kelly "unexpectedly" took her PDC in 2008 with Geoff Lawton and Bill Mollison at the age of eleven. In the beginning I don't believe she realized the importance of what she had accomplished. Now it makes us proud as parents to see that she is sharing her knowledge by writing permacul...

Lots to do at Kamiah Permaculture, if only the weather would cooperate! As I write this it is snowing outside.

Thoughts on Permaculture Pastures-Part I

Julie Pagliaro
Our 44 acre farm has about 25 acres of pasture and an additional 8 acres that could also be utilized for grazing or hay production.

Sustainable Heating for Hybrid Home

Chief Phillip 'Cloudpiler' Landis
We intend to leave five of our ten acres completely in wilderness forest.  One thing that struck me about the Oak and Hickory forest is that, for ever acre of second growth you have there will be .8 cords of limbs and branches that fall each year.  This windfall is surplus energy and can be utili...
