What if your property could provide your family with not only beauty and comfort, but an abundance of food? And what if your home and property were designed to make you less reliant on outside inputs and more resilient in times of economic or weather related stress? Those are some of the things that Permaculture can do for you.
Permaculture is a system of integrated design. It encompasses gardening and farming, energy, economics, ecology, and social relationships – and how those elements work with each other. Permaculture takes a holistic approach. The ideal is to produce more than we consume, providing for our own needs, being free to share with others., and enriching the soil. This is real sustainability.
If you have a vision for such a way of life for your family, we would be delighted to help you by designing a new site or a retrofit of your current property. Nissa is a certified Permaculture Designer and Educator. She received her certification from Oregon State University and has completely redesigned 286 acre Renaissance Farms in Barre, now under development as a working farm, demonstration site, and educational facility.
