After 6 years of building our food forest in the Santa Cruz mountains, we're happy to announce that we're ready to start sharing the surplus with our community.  We're opening a small, perennial permaculture nursery!  My passion is perennial vegetables and medicinal herbs.  I'm a chiropractor and have been practicing herbal medicine for the last 18 years.  It's been such an awesome journey to learn how to grow my own food and medicine for our family.  I've collected and propagated lots of rare perennial vegetable and herb varieties, learned how to grow them, and how to make delicious meals and potent medicines from them.  I'm looking forward to sharing what I've learned along the way.  I've got 2 thoughts for names and can't choose between them.  I'd love to know what you think.  Please vote for your favorite name.  Thanks so much for your input! 🌸

CHOICE #1:  PERMIE PLANTS



CHOICE #2:  PERENNIAL PERMACULTURE

I like the font of the first one better.  The more cursive style is harder for me to read.

I like Perennial Permaculture, too--I think it's understanable by a larger population. I like the style of that logo (with the large P and large L that swoops down to surround the word "permaculture"), but I do think the cursive font chosen could be improved upon (the N's look more like V when looked at independently). Finding a good font is hard!

(I do like that the "permie plants" has Cardenio Modern font, which is the same font we use on permies, and so it has instant permie vibes both in the word and style. I just think, aesthetically, the second option looks better and probably appeals to a wider audience.)

Number 2 is the best for me but the "Perennial" is a bit difficult for me to read.
Best wished for your project

I like Permie Plants. IT is more upbeat and a bit less serious. I like it's font as well and indeed it is easy to read!
Nice for people whose eyes are becoming a little less accurate!
