Explore permaculture design on a family run homestead farm being developed for self-sufficiency, regenerative forestry, diverse organic production and dynamic community education. Join with a group of learners from all experience levels seeking to redesign their lives and landscapes to be more efficient, effective and ethical. Consider how to save time, energy and money by redesigning your home and garden, lifestyle and livelihood. 

 

Tour the farm. Share in a potluck meal. View new permaculture media. Have fun with a conscious group of like minded people.

 

Matt Gravel is a Victoria-based permaculturalist with a passion for sustainable and living systems. After 10 years of property maintenance and conventional landscaping, he became tired of the unsustainable and non-regenerative practices commonly used in urban environments and wanted to find a way to change these urban spaces. He has been studying permaculture since 2012. He completed his Permaculture Design Certificate through Langara College in Vancouver, BC and his Advanced Permaculture Design Certification at the Bullock’s Permaculture Homestead on Orcas Island, WA. Currently, he is working towards a diploma in permaculture education through the Permaculture Institute. Gravel operates a nursery, design, and education business—Plant Buoy: Life Preservation Plants. He is thrilled to be teaching people about low maintenance, ecological systems that grow nutrient dense food and medicine while regenerating urban landscapes.

Nick Adamson-Jones has spent most of his adult life learning about the challenges humanity now faces, and more importantly the solutions that exist to tackle the problems.  Stepping into the role of home homesteading land steward, he now spends his time trying to figure out how to develop the land in ways that support both people and the biosphere.
