The Second Annual Permaculture Yard Tour was a Success!
Over 100 people came, had a good time, and learned a lot. Many thanks to our hosts and assistants. Here are some photos from the tour:
“Permaculture is a design system for creating sustainable human environments.” It offers positive solutions using ecology as the basis of organizing systems of food production, housing, technology, economics, community and other human endeavors.
Gaia’s Guardians is a group of diverse and dynamic men, women and children brought together by our desire to acknowledge and honor sustainable food production and permaculture solutions. We are located on the Gulf coast of Florida in St. Petersburg. Through education, action, and community we work to empower ourselves and strengthen our communities. We gladly welcome the opportunity to share our knowledge, resources and community with you.
“Permaculture is a design system for creating sustainable human environments. The word itself is a contraction not only of permanent agriculture, but also of permanent culture, as cultures cannot survive for long without a sustainable agricultural base and land use ethic. On one level, permaculture deals with plants, animals, buildings, and infrastructures (water, energy, communications). However, permaculture is not about these elements themselves, but rather about the relationships we can create between them by the way we place them in the landscape.”
