Elkhorn Community Garden

Project Type

Urban, Community, Philanthropic aid, Demonstration, Educational

Project Summary

Purpose: Assisting a small group of single moms in low income housing produce their own food and learn about growing rather than shopping for healthy meals.

Project Description

This garden is a basic introduction to the garden. It's a place where children can plant and then observe the growth of their own veggie plants. The local business community assisted with the effort by donating seeds, soil, wood and shovels to get it up and running. The management of the building bought into the project and dug in to get the job done assisted by both the children in the project and some of the tenants. This is the first year of growth and so far we have three apple trees, several blueberry bushes, lots of scarlet runners and peas and beans to feed the soil we have. It is planned that gradually we will build in the composting systems as the tenants buy into this new concept of growing your own groceries.

Legend of Badges

Note: The various badges displayed in people profiles are largely honesty-based self-proclamations by the individuals themselves. There are reporting functions users can use if they know of blatant misrepresentation (for both people and projects). Legitimacy, competency and reputation for all people and projects can be evidenced and/or developed through their providing regular updates on permaculture work they’re involved in, before/after photographs, etc. A spirit of objective nurturing of both people and projects through knowledge/encouragement/inspiration/resource sharing is the aim of the Worldwide Permaculture Network.

PRI Teacher

With the exception of the ‘Member’ who has never taken a PDC, all of the above can apply to become a PRI PDC Teacher. PRI PDC Teachers are those who the PRI recognise, through a vetting board, as determined and competent to teach the full 72-hour course as developed by Permaculture founder Bill Mollison – covering all the topics of The Designers’ Manual as well as possible (i.e. not cherry picking only aspects the teacher feels most interested or competent in). Such teachers also commit to focussing on the design science, and not including subjective spiritual/metaphysical elements. The reason these items are not included in the PDC curriculum is because they are “belief” based. Permaculture Design education concerns itself with teaching good design based on strategies and techniques which are scientifically provable.

PRI PDC Teachers may be given teaching and/or consultancy offerings as they become available as the network grows.
