Hi everyone, id like to give a shout out to a amazing permaculturist and nursery man Sean of Edible Acres. Sean and his partner Sasha run a permaculture nursery in NY state and are among the nicest of people. Any time ive asked questions about plants water works ..they are more then obliged to awnser me back even though they are probably incredibly busy. They grow incredibly usefull plants that range in a number of uses from medicinal to edible only using permaculture methods they have taken a site and turned into paradise. Not only are the plants robust and healthy but the small microswales and hand dug yes people HAND DUG ponds are created with the most critical thought. I would encourage any people out there to check out there channel on youtube Edible Acres if any of this fascinates you.. as well as there nursery site. I am truly a fan and it has inspired me to become more involved with permaculture and the people in it. check it out!

I'd also love to add, that ordering plants from Edible Acres was simple.

The plants thrived. I bought 3 raspberry plants and they produced fruit the same growing season that I ordered them.

And the packaging they arrived in was merrily customized, (and probably recycled?)

His nursery work, in my experience, is as phenomenal as his videos.

I really like how their projects use minimal store bought materials, are built mostly by hand, and are so in tune with nature. A permaculture example for all.
