This website is designed and dedicated to providing inspiration, training and community coordination to our neighbors in the Spokane area who are interested in Permaculture. In general there are many websites and Youtube videos that discuss Permaculture design principles and highlight example of its use all over the world. However there is only one Spokane and it is our home. Sometimes it is hard to interpret which trees, plants and techniques will work best here.
While we will provide summaries and links to books, videos and other websites that are rich in the many topics related to Permaculture, we will concentrate on highlighting and discussing what works here. Luckily we have many experts in the Pacific Northwest and Inland Northwest willing to share thier experience with us.
In the coming months we will provide:
- Calendar Regular Permaculture Study Group meetings concentrating on sharing the basics in our area. When you find an event you want to attend you can register and elect to be reminded by email when the event approaches.
- Locations of resources for trees, seeds, mulch and more. Tips on the best prices and most convenient vendors in your neighborhood (buy VERY locally) can be a great time saving.
- Connect People with Permaculture Design Certificates with people interested in designing their own backyard garden or larger agriculture projects.
- For local Farmers we hope to faciliate conversations about dryland farming techniques, keyline plowing, no-till techniques, polyculture and GMO alternatives. Farmers are our lifeblood and we want to do anything we can to help.
- ...much, much more
