Well, some cities and communities have laws, bylaws, ordinances, and contracts that prevent homeowners from growing their own food on their property.

I would like to discuss the organizations that people can become affiliated with to create support and raise awareness of the benefits of growing your own food on your property in a permaculture-esque manner.

In the USA, people can join the following organizations to raise awareness and promote what they are doing and possibly alter government and community minds:
-With the National Wildlife Federation, a person can register their own site as Certified Wildlife Habitat
-With the Conservation Foundation, people can get their sites certified as environmentally friendly.
-With the North American Butterfly Association, one can get their butterfly garden certified.
-With the Pollinator Partnership, someone can certify their site as a Bee Friendly Farm

What other groups and organizations can you all think of to spark community interest and deter the Department of Making You Sad?
Permaculture isn't that hard to understand. Sometimes a little bump helps: richsoil.com/cards
