I hope you had a wonderful weekend. I’m thankful to have been gifted another reprieve in the weather to finish up those projects that got waylaid because of the snowstorm last week!
The weekend was spent planting some final shrubs in the ground and moving mulch, as well as processing tomatoes and peppers, dehydrating pears, cleaning onions, and putting up my winter squash. It always feels rewarding to wrap up the gardening season and see the pantry and freezer fill up.
If you’ve been following me for awhile, you know I’m a big fan of permaculture. I use permaculture practices on our homestead and in the way that I design sites for my clients. That’s why I’m excited to share my latest video with you. In it, I discuss my favorite permaculture definition. I think one of the reasons that permaculture is not more well known is because it can be defined in countless different ways. Is it organic gardening? Sustainable living practices? A technique, a strategy or some crazy hippie cult?
The definition I discuss in the video encompasses the spirit and philosophy of permaculture. It is a simple definition, yet one that, if practiced, helps to enhance the resilience of your site.
