This afternoon I had to opportunity to take a class on permaculture at a local home. It was so inspiring, and while we have a small yard space and I have no idea what I’m doing, I’m ready to start making small changes. First step, removing landscaping out front that is serving absolutely no purpose and planting a perennial herb garden. On that note, why do we even have grass on our lawns?! The whole yard should be turned into a food forest! I think some sort of rain water catchments will be next. I loved this outdoor kitchen area at the home we visited.
I’m so inspired by the three tenets of permaculture: care for the earth, care for the people, return of surplus. I see lots of yummy, home grown food in our future.
