Permaculture: Zone One
We will be replacing the degraded siding, re-building the porch, creating gardens around the house that combine ornamental and edible plants, a small family orchard, a natural play space, and an outdoor kitchen. We will be building a specially designed rocket stove, installing a patio and pergola, gates, and hedgerow. Wherever possible, we will utilize materials sourced here on our farm and from the community waste stream.
Your gift does double duty – it helps defray the cost of supplies and materials but it also provides scholarships for students who are interested in a hands-on learning experience. Instruction will include identification and uses of various plants in the landscape, presentation and explanation of various appropriate technologies and alternative building techniques.
After the initial installation, the Zone One project will provide ongoing education and demonstration.
