Urban Permaculture & the Covid-19 (Coronavirus) Pandemic

Posted by James Martin 2 months ago

Santa Fe Urban Permaculture Network -- linking residents, neighborhoods and projects in Santa Fe, NM, in a time of pandemic and economic crisis.

Hi all -

I'm new to this forum and am just learning my way here. I wanted to mention a crucial detail about the emerging Santa Fe Urban Permaculture Network. We are here to serve city of Santa Fe (NM) residents.  We are arising into the world at this time with full awareness of the Coronavirus pandemic and the associated requirement of maintaining "social distancing" protocols as guided by our state's governor and our city's mayor, as well as the World Health Organizaiton and the CDC.  All of our activities will be aligned with strict adherence to both goverment requirements (the law) and medical guidance from the CDC and WHO. 

We are emerging as a Network at this time to facilitate urban permaculture practices for all of the pre-pandemic reasions and motivations which are typical to permaculture practice.  AND -- crucially -- we are enacting permaculture in our city in order, in part, to address real potential food security issues which may appear in the wake of financial and economic hardship and possible collapse of our previous mode of economy. 

As a Network, rather than a single organization or group, our purpose is to facilitate communication between individuals, families, neighborhood projects, etc., which seek to expand and nurture organic, sustainable gardening, farming and permaculture practices in a time of pandemic and econmic troubles.  Anyone in Santa Fe who shares these purposes and goals may utilize our emerging communications network to initiate cooperative and collaborative community projects.  We are here to help one another in myriad ways.

Michael Vang : I was hoping that SARS-CoV-2 would not have a large impact on our food production, but seeing how it has negatively impacted the US, there is a potential need for gardeners, farmers and etc. to help fill in a real gap if the situation continues to worsen.
