Using permaculture techniques to grow nutritious food and improve air quality regardless of potential limitations on your location. Projects include fertilization methods, seed saving, and urban-friendly means of expanding your permaculture influence.

Sand
Create a self-watering container system for planting.
Prepare a garden bed (home or community garden) without digging.
Plant and maintain 2 of the following plants inside your home to improve air quality:
  Areca Palm - Crysalidocarpus lutescens
  Mother-In-Law’s Tongue/Snake Plant - Sansevieria trifasciata
  Money Plant/Golden Pothos/Devil’s Ivy - Epipremnum aureum
  Peace Lily - Spathiphyllum ‘Mauna Loa’ cochlearispathum
  Boston Fern - nephrolepis Exaltata bostoniensis
  Spider Plant - Chlorophytum comosum
  Gerbera Daisy or Barberton Daisy - Gerbera jamesonii
  Red-edged Dracaena - Dracaena marginata
  Pot Mum - Chrysanthemum morifolium
  Lady Palm - Rhapis excelsa
Select 3 of the following:
  Chop and drop (50 sq ft)
  Seed saving
  Create potted polycultures. (minimum 12 pots)
  Ruth Stout style composting (at least 2 locations)
  Set up a vertical gardening system.
  Maintain a comfrey plant and use it to create ‘tea’.
  Feed a vermiposting system at least 10 lbs of scraps.
  Innoculate your garden bed with a garden mushroom spawn to break down mulch, fertilize, and provide mushrooms.

Alternative planters/garden beds/mini gardens
Simple kitchen/food scrap compost collection
Improving bagged/local soil (simple ammendments)
Winterizing small beds/planters
Simple/mini greenhouses
Pest/critter protection
Companion planting
Make seed tape
Make seed starting pots
Research native plants and source seeds
Keep a weather log
Keep a growing log (track time to sprout/bloom/fruit/harvest)
Create a vivarium (closed system)
Create a vivarium (open system)
Simple hydroponic systems
Simple aquaponic systems
Create eco/permie fertilizer
Create eco/permie bug spray
Mini-hugel beds
Grow one of each: starch, fruit, veggie, protein
Root a woody cutting
Root an herby cutting
Simple grafting
Sprout seeds (soaked, in soil, on paper, etc)

I've done a lot of these myself, and I would love to help create pages/threads for these! Let me know if that's ok

I already have plenty of house plants. Also some of those mentioned here. So all I have to do is make photos of them and then I get the BB?
