"permaculture is a philosophy of working with, rather than against nature; of protracted and thoughtful observation rather than protracted and thoughtless labor; and of looking at plants and animals in all their functions, rather than treating any area as a single product system."
BILL MOLLISON - PROFESSOR OF ENVIRONMENTAL PSYCHOLOGY
upfront & beautiful.
To be sure, my urban permaculture project is an experimental work-in-progress, but piece by piece I am applying and re-imagining old ideas in what I think are beautiful new ways, to improve the quality of life for my family, and the value of our property. It is my hope that people notice and take an idea or two home to try out in the smallest of ways, and that together our collective intentions and actions make a positive dent.
I believe that in the space that lies between today and an unsustainable future, there exists huge possibility to learn from a time not so long ago when the concept of charming side-yard vegetable and fruit gardens, and even grand potagers enjoyed an enviable commonplace.
I believe that, regardless of where we live, we absolutely can and are obliged to create on our windowsills and balconies, backyards or frontyards, schoolyards and vacant lots — beautiful, productive, sustainable, righteous gardens, based on urbanized permaculture principles, that are nothing short of up front and beautiful.
