What is Permaculture?

Permaculture is a sustainable, resilient, and systems-based farming practice that supports ecosystems as they exist naturally in our environment. According to Bill Mollison, Senior Lecturer in Environmental Psychology at the University of Tasmania, permaculture is "working with, rather than against nature." It is a method of agriculture that allows plants and animals to support each other in their natural ecosystems, which requires careful planning and a strong understanding of beneficial inter-species relationships.


Our Enchanted Edible Forest offers many opportunities to learn about sustainable, local food production nestled within a diversified, certified-organic farm.


Sample many organic, local fruits and berries grown with sustainable methods.
