About Alana Bliss

Alana Bliss has been exploring, studying, and practicing holistic sustainable solutions for many years. She received her Permaculture Design Certification in 2005. Permaculture is a design science that merges all aspects of culture to create systems that increase carrying capacity of land while regenerating ecosystems. Alana has worked as a community builder, entrepreneur, and project manager with a focus on regenerative systems. 

Alana co-founded the Fruition Center for Holistic Ecology in Costa Rica after she and her family converted a diesel school bus RV to run on used veggie oil and drove to Costa Rica from Minnesota. There she facilitated volunteers, interns, and students in a hands on exploration of a regenerative lifestyle. Alana places special attention on social systems to support people in connecting with each other and their environment. 

Alana returned to Minneapolis where she and her husband started an Ecological Design and installation business. They used Permaculture ethics, principles, and design practices to transform urban spaces into sanctuaries for people and wildlife. Alana also worked with a nonprofit to distribute free organic food to people throughout the Twin Cities. 

Most recently, Alana has co-facilitated the establishment of a community farmstead in eastern Tennessee. She currently lives there with 4 of her 5 children, her husband, other families, and lots of animals.  She is also working on a village scale community that has a core set of guiding principles focused on health freedom, respect, and thrivability
