Growing plants for food and medicine can be one of the most rewarding things you can do for yourself and your family. Here you will find information on growing vegetables, fruits, and herbs along with sustainable gardening practices for a more self-sufficient lifestyle, closer to nature.

Permaculture gardening is a blueprint for sustainable practice in a garden, underpinned by a series of ethics and ideas. Rooted in a philosophy of harmony with nature, permaculture is all about making sure that what we do today does not have a negative impact on the world of tomorrow. Simply put, permaculture gardening is a holistic approach to gardening, and something we feel very strongly about. 

Basically, Permaculture uses organic gardening and farming practices but it goes beyond these practices and integrates the garden and home to create a lifestyle that impacts less on the environment. … Permaculture brings production of food closer to consumers and the consumer’s wastes back into the cycle.
